Running the cable myself

I'm considering running the cable from the garage to my Fuse board and meter myself because the extra on quotes is quite a bit.

Can I double check that 6mm twin and earth is what is needed (17m run from inside garage, under first floor floorboards across width of house and then down under the stairs to where the meter and Fuse board is located) and e.g the Prysmian stuff from B&Q is fine and meets whatever standard required.

Also I saw in another thread a recommendation to run an Ethernet cable. It's this because some charge points need them (I'm looking at Ohme mainly which uses a sim but I think I have quite a bit of spare Ethernet somewhere).

I ran the cables for my charge points. I asked for quotes on that basis as it was a long run and I wanted the cables as hidden as possible.
Once I'd chosen the installer they were happy to tell me which cable I needed, it saved them the hard work or running cables through my loft.
I bought the cable online, there are plenty of wholesalers selling online.
