Hi,  We want to extend our RBI aerial cable by approximately one metre (Huawei B315s 607).  Can anyone suggest a supplier?

Replace your 10m cable with 15m cable: https://www.gowifi.co.nz/pigtails/p-41.html

Thanks, but replacing the whole cable seems to be a fairly drastic solution. 

 

The existing cable is only about 6 metres long.  Is there some technical reason why a short extension cable won't work?

Adding extension cables adds additional signal loss. You could add one of these at the antenna end and pull slack through: https://www.gowifi.co.nz/pigtails/p-51.html Alternatively if you have very good signal strength already, then you could request a custom made extension from GoWiFi.
