Thanks both for the feedback that it is such a basic cable.
The reason I asked was I am anticipating the FTTC availability by the end of December (according to BDUK in Surrey) and I already have a UTP cable between the master socket and my Router located approx. 15ft away in the upstairs bedroom used as my office.
So based on the fact that AFAIK such a UTP cable is the "best" for such modem usage I am hoping that the BTOR engineer will use that and place the modem in the office. That is best case scenario.............................I am also looking at replacing that cable with a CAT5e or CAT6 which I could use as the modem cable if the engineer is OK doing so. But if he plays hardball at least the CAT cable will be there ready to be 're-plugged' to link the Ethernet port to the Router in the office.
The hurdle I have is pulling the CAT cable through a hole that is a tad too small a diameter???
Lots to think about to get ready for FTTC
