How to choose network Cable – Cat5 vs Cat6 vs Cat7 vs Cat8 Ethernet Comparison

Get Cat5e:
Get Cat6:
Beware of marketing schemes that tell you to pay extra for overpriced cable you might not even need, learn what the differences are between each Category of network cable and decide what you really need based on the specs and limitations of each cable. Sometimes it’s worth spending a little extra to future-proof an installation, but sometimes it might not be necessary. I hope this video helps.

Allen Toler says:

I’ve run Cat 5E and tested it to a little over 1 gig at 320 feet. We do use Cat 6 now but I didn’t see the need to upgrade from Cat 5E. I do this for a living. Just saying.

If my internet is only 50 mbps do I need cat 5 or cat 5e

Is there a speed difference if I use cat 5e?
