I'm looking for a whole bunch of Cat 6 as I prepare to rewire my home during an upcoming reno.
Monoprice.com has incredible prices ($80/1000ft), but it would cost me $375 to ship 6 boxes! Firefold.com has a surplus sale on right now, $89/1000ft, and their shipping is a much more reasonable $210.
But as they're both US based, on top of these costs would be the duty/brokerage at the border. I'm not sure exactly what that would amount to, but based on experience with ebay, I doubt it'll be cheap.
I've looked at a few canadian based companies, but they have all been right out in left field, with prices ranging from $170-298 /1000ft. Even with the exchange, that's bad. I don't expect to find anything as cheap as monoprice, but I'm also not going to pay a 100% premium just to "buy Canadian".
Has anyone found a reasonably priced Canadian supplier?
Might I even be lucky enough to find something in South Western Ontario, that I can pickup? (I'm about an hour outside Toronto, wouldn't mind a road trip to save $80).
