I am planning on laying my adsl cable (RJ11 connectors, 15metres long) from the phone socket to the modem/router under some new floors that are being fitted. What is the fastest/best type of cable I can get, as I won't be able to change it for many many years once the floors go down.

Not bad for a quid...:-)

Belkin is a noted name in this area.

Wire I used came from B&Q multi strand Phone wire, mine also is a very long wire. I do not have no problems with it. I Just use two wires for ADSL and two for Phone. Still using Filters where they are needed. double plugs and sockets at each end
