Any CAT5/6 Patch Cable supplier recommendations?


[link to this post]
 
I've seen a few recommendations for cable suppliers over the years here on TB, but my search abilities are letting me down right now.

I need to buy a large handful of various length pre-made snagless (or at a push fully booted, but I hate how the boots go hard as time passes) CAT5/6 patch cables.

It's a work purchase and I am loathe to go through Amazon for them as chasing up VAT invoices is a royal PITA that way. And it's a bit of a lottery what you end up with.

So if anyone here is regularly buying these things and knows a supplier that ships quality products, in a reasonable timeframe I'd be much obliged for a nudge in their direction.

Thanks in advance and beers on Friday..

Use the Ginp Formula to determine if your vdsl2 connection is with or without G.INP.
Divide your IP Profile by your Sync Speed and the answer is 0.9669 (with) or 0.9679 (without)

I tend too buy "Cables to Go" brand they now use the trade name "C2G". Wide range of colours and lengths in their range and quite a few places stock them. In the past I have used a supplier called Kikatek but there are plenty of others.

Thanks for that... good prices for sure. Sadly no snagless offering though, but I can live with the booted ones over the fully booted for anything but patch panel use.

Why does anyone even buy unbooted cables? Every time I come across the things out in real installations (i.e. less than perfect undisturbed situations) they're falling apart - the outer sleeve out of the jack and only tenuously holding together thanks to the crimps on the inner cores.

Did you check out C2G at Kikatek? http://www.kikatek.com/advanced_search_result.php?iP...

We use DCDI and find them reliable and good for patch cables.

I always get Belkin snagless moulded cables from BroadbandBuyer. The link is to the Cat5E ones.
