    Where do you get your patch cables.

    We are going to need to buy a load of network leads and patch cables soon. I wonderd where you lot get yours from and who is the most competitive?

    We get most of ours from our cabling company, Conex, but we've also bought from Videk before.

    I would like working cables at the end of it. Admittedly, the idea of working sixth formers is quite a novel one. They do even less work than our network technician who won't make cables because it takes too long. I could make one in the time he spends on the phone ordering one.
