Burying phone line
 
I bought a roll of phone wire when I built my house and had some left over. I want to run it to a shed I built, is it okay to direct bury this type of wire? I has a blue insulation on it.

It should be gel filled for use outdoors or underground.

Yes, it's OK. No, it won't last as long as a bury-rated cable.
