Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality cable Got a 20m run of this to link two switches, router and fibre modem and make a high speed network over two floors of my house and it's ideal - not to mention good value. Went with this solid cable as I decided to route the cabling externally rather than try to chase behind plasterboard and also try to get through the ceiling / floor. Not had any issues with the cable or attaching it to terminals - I've used the Kauden cat6 sockets to terminate the cable runs and it all went together very easily with a decent impact punchdown tool.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Utter utter utter rubbish Shop somewhere else! The cable has to be stripped back to bare copper to fit in the rj45 plugs that I was sold with it. They are the wrong rj45 plugs, despite me returning to the store I was told they were the right plugs. No they are not! The cable pairs each have a solid white colour, which makes it a nightmare trying to determine which cable is which when assembling. Awful, awful, awful!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cable is fine. The white cable of each pair has a stripe on it corresponding with the cable it is paired with.

Does the cable cut to length come with the 'plugs' attached at the end?
Asked by: Ed
This cable sold to customers who are assembling their own units so they are not supplied assembled with end fittings etc. Try looking at something like our order code A80CF as an assembled alternative.

What is the difference between "Cat 6 UTP solid", and "Cat 6 UTP stranded"? They looked same to me.
