that should be the least of your problems, not sure what are you trying to
achieve by using STP, but remember once you shield, it should be all the
way, that include patch cables, switches, plugs, and pc, etc...., they need
to be all at the same earth potential.
- you need to remember earth become hazardous in nature if is not used
- you will need a separate earth bar for communications only terminated at
the meter box, by a licensed electrician.
- and don't even think about sharing a STP between buildings, not that it
would not works, it become lethal and hazardous in nature including fire.
- the twist in the cable is more than enough to suppress interference, but
if you run into trouble, you can always use ferrite beads.
my advice unless you have a specific need to use STP, you should avoid it.
