I went to Bunnings a while ago to get some - all I wanted was two lengths. they were $8 each for the white stuff. A dude that works there came up and said "Mate, dont buy that - here, get this". and pointed to a bundle of the orange ones (heavy duty stuff) - a 10 pack for $12. I think they are 4m long, so thats 40m. I'd try that mate.

White pipe = communications

Orange pipe = electrical

Foxtel coax = RG6




still trying to track that shit down (rg6)

fucking foxtell, did an install here and it came with a 2nd install somehwere else in the house for nothing.
Nothin my ass, those kernts wanted around 250 for the other install!

saying, oh its such along way from the other unit that we'll have to charge you for it.
I think they meant to say, rob you fucking blind pleb.

granted its about 60 odd mtrs of cable to do so, but fuck me 250?
So i put it to foxtell, "when do you start charging for extra meterage?"

and they just couldnt understand that i'd have to be entitled to some meterage from the 2nd install and then the rest added on.
dumbasses didnt want to know about it. false fuckn advertising if you ask me.

So i'll do the running of the cable and shit myself (probably fall of the roof, die, come back to life) and then they can get the fuck around here and hook me up.
I guess it literaly pays to do shit yerself when you can.

end rant.
