Default Virgin co-ax cable

For a friend who's not on Usenet...
Need to replace the Virgin co-ax cable which connects to the
broadband modem and TiVo with a longer length. What spec is it?
It has F-type connectors, which AFAICS are always 75ohm impedance?

Usually something akin to RG6, or if you need thicker use RG11.
You should be able to get it from

Yes. I don't know the spec but satellite cable should do - cable is
essentially terrestrial TV over coax, with the terrestrial frequency bands
holding digital data rather than analogue. Satellite has higher frequency
requirements than cable, which I imagine loss is more important for cable
(which runs for hundreds of metres). But not an issue if it's just an extra
10m or whatever.

CT-100 will do the job, or its later spec replacement.

almost all coax is 75ohm for reasons to detailed to go into here.

So almost all 75ohm coax will work.

its simply a case of finding one that fits the connectors with decent
low loss.

'satellite' cable generally means 'good enough' and will fit F-type
connectors.

Google searches seem to indicate that Webro HD 100 is the stuff to use
internally.
