---------- CAT5 ---------- Cat 5 is the slowpoke of the bunch. It can handle 10/100 Mbps speeds (Fast Ethernet) at up to 100 MHz bandwidth.
---------- CAT5e ---------- Cat 5e (Cat 5 enhanced) is currently the most commonly used in new installations. A step above Cat 5, it can handle 1000 Mbps speeds (gigabit Ethernet) at 100 MHz.
---------- CAT6 ---------- Category 6 is a major improvement over Cat 5e. It's really just the bee's knees. It's suitable for up to 10 gigabit Ethernet at 250 MHz. To even better tackle the issue of that pesky crosstalkin', Cat 6 cable has an internal separator that isolates pairs from one another. For those who want to "future-proof" their residential or commercial network as much as possible without a significant cost increase, Cat 6 is a great choice.
Fantastic upgrade to my home network. Paired with Cat6 ethernet cables running to all my devices (Desktop, laptops, PS4, Blu ray players, etc.) data transfers between all my device are incredibly fast and stable. Streaming 1080p video files over the network is flawless and copying large files to other devices almost instant. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone looking to improve their existing home network who want consistently fast and reliable connections. I can only assume it would be even better with a gigabit standard WiFi router and modem to prevent bottlenecks in Internet speed, however I haven't seen any drops in my 67Mb down rate.
Looking forward to moving to a manged version down the road when I'd have more use for it!
working great so far on a total run of about 250' while using a wimpy 6mbit connection but you should be aware that this is STRANDED (which you'll only find down the page where there's further product description) and from what I've read many companies don't even sell stranded longer than 30 feet due to attenuation issues. I found others stating 100' should be the max for stranded so it seems this stranded cable shouldn't be sold at this length but that concern would most likely apply to those expecting/needing gigabit speeds and/or professional installers who already know what I found out after the fact. My mistake but that's what they call the learning curve.
I am able to stream Netflix at 720p with this 150' cable coupled to another 100' cat 6 cable so I have no practical complaints yet but 6mbits/sec is a far cry from even the 100mbit standard for 5e as far as proving speed.
I only know it's stranded since I felt compelled to cut an end off due to pulling...
