Default Extending FTTC from a master socket

Colleague of mine has just bought his first house. The master socket is
in a stupid place - what's the best kind of cable to run from there to
where his router will be? He'd like to keep the 80Mbps he gets from the
cab across the road.

(Cable fatness is not an issue. The first job was to strip a load of
walls back to get rid of the asbestos-ridden plaster - done by pros in
suits. Complete re-wire is the next project)


Solid core CAT5e or CAT6 cable
Does the master socket have a faceplate filter fitted?

Multiple filters, one at each socket, is not the best way to proceed
despite what your ISP may tell you.
