Ethernet cable

(12,305 Views)

Need help on what Ethernet cable to buy for 1gig internet.  We currently have 50 Mb service.  The coax between ONT and router run along the two basement walls and into the basement ceiling vis a utilly cut out btween the garage and basement.  The coax cable then run up into our study via small opening for hot water baseboard into the router.  Total distance approximately 50 feet.  Verizon has told us they will not follow the same path for new ethernet cable required 1gig service.  So I plan to make install my own cable.  What type of cable should I buy ( CAT ?) ?

 

Should I buy 75 ft and have extra cable  or run the risk of being to short and need a ethernet connector

 

Thanks
