I've been trying for months to find on internet some serious cable that isn't from a unknown seller from amazon or has a shipping of more than 10 euros (monoprice seems a great site, but then every useful site about computers/technology are based in america... so i have to pay a high shipping). I live in italy. Been trying to post this to some subreddit but they all have deleted my posts (even italian ones).
The cat 6a cable needs to be at least 19/20m

^^^This^^^

Go visit a local shop that does installs. Ask to see what they buy in bulk. Then maybe buy some connectors from them out of appreciation.

And just to add, if you have not already, by a quality crimper. Wasted a lot of money buying cheap crimpers only to waste connectors and cables because I did not get good crimps. I finally spent the money I should have spent in the first place, and bought a quality crimper. No bad crimps since.

As "invest" in a Ethernet cable tester. It is amazing how such an affordable product is able to reduce blood pressure and prevent (or at least slow down) receding hairlines.

For things like this I've used Kenable.co.uk. for years. Great prices and quality products. I've no idea about their shipping costs to Italy, especially as 20m cable weighs a bit. but if you haven't got a local supplier that's where I'd check first. Here's a listing for 20/25M CAT6.

I don't live in europe, but you can check for standards, frequency certs on the cable itself

"The standard for Category 6A (augmented Category 6) is ANSI/TIA-568.2-D (replaces 568-C.2)"
and/or
ISO/IEC 11801:2010 AMD2 standard

Normally, this is true. But it assumes the cable is not some counterfeit knock-off made in some corrupt factory in China or other dubious place that was smuggled in past your customs. This is why I recommended checking with a local shop - and to get a tester.
