Default Are the nexus 5 3G/4G antenna cables cross compatible

Are the nexus 5 3G/4G antenna cables cross compatible. I broke both of them while fixing the screen which is great now except I have no service

Can I buy two of the same? I believe it should work due to it being coaxial right?

If so should I buy these two?

Or will any non nexus 5 one work?

Cheers guys

No the centre is the Ariel. The outside is the ground plane. You could use any wire. It's the size that is vital. It has to be a multiple, or fraction of the wavelength
Buy new good quality ariels. even being a fraction out in size will waste energy and make heat
