    Good reliable stuff here , approx £60-70 for 300 meters.

    Black Box - EYN870A, GigaTrue® 550 CAT6, 550-MHz Bulk Cable

    Apparently , theres a lot of fake stuff around these days that wont perform to spec and is a fire hazard to boot , so for wiring a new place up , I wouldnt really go any cheaper unless you can verify the stuff is genuine before buying.
