*whitch would be faster?*

Neither.

Phone cable is simpler and easier - just be sure to get decent quality cable.

As the phone cable from the telephone exchange to the inside of your house is possibly several kilometres long a (good quality) phone extension won't make the speeds any worse.

I Use a Multi Wire Phone cable about 3/16ins it runs about 80 ft from my front door to back bedroom no problems. The cable is a white one think I bought it years ago from Wicks
