    I'm wanting to buy some CAT6 cable, possibly 2 x 305m reels.

    The prices range from £60 to £150 per reel.

    Is there anything I should look out for?

    Hi

    We mainly use Excel, not the cheapest but never had any problems with it.

    They also do a paired real so you can run two runs at the same time that is very useful.

    Thanks Seb. Slightly more than I wanted to pay?

    This is the cheapest I have found:

    RJ45 Network Lan Cat5e Cat6 Gigabit Patch Bulk PC Cable 30M 40M 50M 60M100M 150M | eBay

    £19.59 for 150m so I could get 600m for just short of £80.

    Alternatively something like this:

    NEW!! 305m ROLL Network Cat6 Ethernet RJ45 Cable Solid Reel LOW SMOKE | eBay

    This says it's not CCA and would cost me £180 for 600m. Is CCA important?

    What price do I need to pay for a home network? What about something in between at about £70 per 305m?
