Uh, CAT5 is the same type of wire as a phone line and similarly priced.
In the UK, this isn't true on either count. The 8-core phone cable is
around half the diameter, while the 4-core stuff is about the size of
a couple of matches stuck together, and is handy for tucking into odd
corners., under skirtings etc The pairs also aren't always twisted. It
also tends to be white, while CAT5 comes in most colours except white,
with grey being commonest.
