REQ. suggestions for BULK telephone + coaxial wire . . . and a wiring question
 
Hey there, what kind of telephone wire would I need to purchase for a 3-line telephone -and- what kind for a single-line telephone? or are they the same? Can I get the telephone wire "shielded" or are there different grades of quality? We have rats, that's why I'm asking heh heh. :laughing:

Next, any thoughts as to the best online resource for BULK telephone & coaxial wire?

Thanks guys.

For phone, CAT-5 is usually the way to go. You can get anywhere from 1-4 phone lines on a single CAT-5 cable, and it gives you the flexibility to convert back and forth from a phone jack to a network jack if your needs change.
