Question

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.

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.
