Note that some of the cheaper cables labelled CW1308 and Cat5 are not "twisted pair". Particularly suspect are flat ones for easy hiding under carpet or going under the corners of doors.

You must get twisted pair, and when using them you must use matched pairs.

For instance, with blue or blue/white you must use white/blue. With orange you must use orange/white. They are coloured this way to identify the wires that are twisted round each other, to help counteract any external electromagnetic interference.

You must not use blue with orange as they are not twisted round each other and the interference effect is magnified not reduced.

Hi

I guess its ok to use cat5e cable to back of my master socket where the line comes on terminal A and B, but I just wanted to make sure it will work with FTTC Fibre Optic? I have found this one which looks like it will be good as it is Belkin, the plan is I will cut the two plugs off the end and cut the wire to the required length. Also will the wires inside this Belkin cable be copper, not copper clad like I have had in the past? I hope they are as they are made by Belkin.

Thanks

You need solid core cables, or it will not make proper contact in the krone connectors.

If the cable has plugs on it, then it is highly likely to be multi-strand cables, so it's more flexible.

In reply to a post by Computerman142:
Doesn't FTTC have a 10 day training period?, if so is it best to wait until after the 10 days before I fit the telephone cable?


ADSL has a ten day training period. Ten days is normally quoted for FTTC, but in practice it's commonly more like three days

"training period" ? is "A semi-myth. All this does is set one figure from which a second is calculated"

I think you should read this:
