Choosing the right cable....
May 4th, 2017 9:27 am

We have a selection of cable available, in this guide we explain what each type is design for.....

CW1308 (https://www.run-it-direct.co.uk/telephone-network-cable/CW1308cable10MW/)

CW1308 is the original specification for twisted pair telephone cable. The pairs are twisted as this cancels out electrical noise which can affect both the voice signal in the way of an audible hum and the broadband signal by way of lowering sync speed. To be true CW1308 specification the conductors MUST be pure copper. There's a lot of cable out there that claims to be CCA (Copper Clad Aluminium) or CCS (Copper Clad Steel-VERY NASTY!!) CW1308 but it simply can't be. CCA & CCS is also terrible for broadband, even a short length can have dire affects on signal quality. CW1308 is available in black or white and is an INDOOR or internal grade cable ONLY. It is available in multiple pair counts, the cable we sell is 2 pair as for most domestic installations that is adequate.
