Can this cable be used with digital handsets connected to a PBX type system? We need connect an Ericsson 3212 handset to the wall socket 8m away, and the phone only has a 6m cable supplied.

Is the price per metre ?
Asked by: N/A
This cable (like most of our cables) is priced per metre ans is sold cut to length in units of 1m upto a maximum of 100m. It will be supplied in a single piece, so if you order 20 units, you will receive a 20m length. Order 100 x Order Code to get a 100m length on a reel, at a substantial saving.
