Network cable for direct burial:

Full Copper 500 ft Cat6 Ethernet Cable/Wire 500ft Cat-6 Waterproof Outdoor/Direct Burial/Underground

If you can find less that 500 ft of this, you probably won’t need that much. Be sure to look for solid bare coppper. You won’t want to use this indoors; it’s much harder to work with than standard Cat 6.

Be sure to avoid:

  • CCA (copper cladded aluminum)
  • Stranded copper

Indoor Cable:

For Network: Bulk Cat6 Solid Cable 1000’ Blue

For Phone and/or Backup Network: Bulk Cat5e Solid Cable 1000’ Gray

Be sure to avoid:

  • CCA (copper cladded aluminum)
  • Stranded copper
  • Plenum (unless running in a plenum where required by fire code)
