Where can I buy a good quality telephone extension cable for my broadband connection on the high street?
Want to try a new one to see if that improves anything.

I don't know about good quality but I bought one from Tescos the other week, very cheap and works brilliantly. And I use it for BB.

They are all much the same but if you would be happier paying more try a BT shop.

I've got BB Silver, and I bought one from a well known diy store when I was working for them, and a replacement when I moved recently. It was a 10m, and it works fine.

You would do much better by buying a proper ADSL data cable rather than a telephone extension - connect it to the Master Socket using a splitter (microfilter) and run the phone from the splitter's other socket.

I use a 10m ADSL data cable for my BB in this way which cost me £7.59 - however you can buy them even cheaper from:
