You have a fundamental misunderstanding induced EMI/RFI.  The source of

will have zero effect on your cables' signal integrity.

Not always the case. A lot of electrical equipment - elevators for example - can put huge spikes on power lines. And while an elevator equipment room may be floors away from
your LAN cable, it's attached to power cabling that runs all over the place.

Of course, having said that, that doesn't necessarily make a case for shielded cable. Induced currents in poorly wired power-line grounding probably effect you more if you're using shielded
cable connected to that same grounding.
