    Years ago when Mediacom installed cable to our new house, they left behind a spool with what I estimate to be a few hundred feet of coaxial cable. Since then I've held on to it, mostly because I didn't know what to do with it. But I'd like to get rid of it. Is it worth anything, or is there a market for that sort of thing?

    If you strip it down to the copper wiring I would assume it would worth something.

    Not a lot of value there. It would be nice for someone looking to rewire thier house or add new outlets.

    You could maybe get $10-$15 on craigslist for it. Is the cable type is printed on the cable or spool? RG-6? RG-6 QUAD?

    You could always return it to Mediacom.

    Yep. That's assuming they forgot it, rather than just left it for the homeowner to do another run (Mediacom left me 50' to run through a ceiling to another future set).
