'[EE]: Need source for aerial and/or direct burial '
2002\06\28@095105 by Bob Ammerman

picon face
I am looking for a source for a modest quantity (100-150 feet) of one to
three pair aerial (preferred) or direct burial telephone cable. Anybody have
any idea where I can find this? I'm also looking for NIDs (Network Interface
Devices), the little box the telco installs which contains surge protectors.
Alternatively just the approrpriate surge protectors for telco lines would
be fine.

I have been asked to install an on-campus phone system at the facility where
we hold our church summer camp. I will be using a small Panasonic KSU
(KX-T308) and there will be phones in three separate buildings, as well as
in a box by the poll. I don't want these outside (read lightning-prone)
wires coming into the buildings without appropriate protective devices.

Do you really want to bury aerial cable? If its dry then you will major
troubles. I am an out side plant guy by trade and i run into buried areial
cable all the time that is full of water. 95% of it is dry insulation . You
need to get a cable packed with icky pic. Icky pic is a water dispersion
agent. As far a  cheap source for it I havent a clue. Good luck!!!

Both my local well stocked independent hardware store and electrical supply
house (here in Virginia) sell direct burial telephone 2 or 3 pair. It is the
same type the Verizon phone company uses. Costs about $.26 a foot. It has a
solid copper inner jacket, plastic covered, and the wires are floating in a
clear waterproof jel. A little messy to work with if you're not used to it, but
very waterproof.

There are comments after the quotes.

"Just for the fun of it, we've gone and registered
VerizonShouldSpendMoreTimeFixingItsNetworkAndLessMoneyOnLawyers.com. We look
forward to seeing their legal threat for THAT one. (This domain uses the new
63 character maximum length name - some browsers may complain about this.) "

Unfortunately, that domain seems to have finally expired.  Now, maybe I'm
just silly, but do you really *want* to use the same cable as Verizon?

Verizon just purchases it from the same supplier the supply house gets it from.
