Correct type of coax for rewiring

Hi everyone, the installer who originally put FIOS into our house used existing coax from earlier cable installations to simplify/speed up the install process. The coax is degraded outside, rigged up badly, and basically needs to be replaced and re run, which I am taking care of.

I've never worked with coax other than connecting it together. I'm going to need to buy around 150 feet to pull off this job, so which grade should I get? Again, this will be outside, and ultimately split 2 ways then 3 from one of those. Thanks!

Re: Correct type of coax for rewiring

This should give you an idea.

or this link

When i originally put my coaxial in when I had Time Warner I bought a roll of it at an electronics store. I placed it from the outside via splitters that you can hide under your siding. If you cannot hide it there are other ways to run it to where you want it to go.

if you take your time you should do ok. And have a friend assist you.
