Hiya all, done my research etc.  Just need to know a link that you guys can suggest from say Cable Direct or Computer Store for some outdoor housing tubes for Cat6 cable b/c it's going from the TV room to under the house outside before it gets to the switch.  And what sort of puncher tool?

Got the UFB install next week, received my ISP router today :)

Use gel filled outdoor cable. There is no need to run it in conduit.

Outdoor cable isn't that quite pricey? The outdoor area part is maybe 15m tops. But if I were to run a gel cable I would need maybe 25m to get to the laundry room which is where the network switch is going to be.

No idea of retail cost. I only ever use 500m drums which are well under $1 per metre.

Underground dry cat5e is around $3.50/meter to the customer.

Underground Cat 6 is around $4.50/meter.

Gel filled cable sucks and there isn't much cost difference for dry cable.

Gel filled cable may be a PITA to work with but I'd never not use it. I've encountered numerous cable runs over the years where water ingress has caused issues, magically the water always seems to find it's way to the end of the cable and RJ45 plugs.

I used carrier grade cable from here for a recent long distance install and put it inside 19mm black irrigation pipe ($10 for 20m) from Bunnings as added protection, it runs up a hill in some bush behind my house so just wanted to protect a bit from standing on it etc once I forget where it is. Also helped with burying it in places I use the scrub cutter.

Cheers
