Your wondering what the difference between CAT5 and CAT6 cables? Well lets take a quick look.
CAT5 - Cat 5 cable can support 10 or 100 Mbps Ethernet, and has a capability of up to 100MHz.
CAT6 - Cat 6 cable is ideal for supporting 10 Gigabit Ethernet, and is able to operate at up to 250 MHz
We recommend CAT6 at the least for installs, and if you are building a new house and the wall are open run a bunch of CAT6 wires to all the bedrooms back to a centralized location
