Default How many switches needed for a long cable run.

I just want to make sure I'm armed with a little more info about a long network cable run. I'm having Wimax installed, and unfortunately it's going to require a 700 ft cable ran. The installer said that one switch will be needed to be installed 200 feet away from the antenna and I should be fine. I'm thinking that one switch won't be enough for such a long cable run. Maybe one @ 200 foot from the antenna and another when it reaches my house. Am I close? BTW..this is cat 6 cable. any input is appreciated.
