What’s the difference between Cat5 and Cat6 data cable installations?

The most common types of network cable are Cat5, Cat5E and Cat6. While there are a number of technical differences between the different categories of cable, speed is the main consideration when choosing the best option.

Cat5 is an older style of network cable and still commonly used in homes. This cable supports speeds of 10 or 100 megabits per second (Mbps). Cat5e has also been around for a while now, enhancing the Cat5 cabling to support gigabit speeds and reducing crosstalk.

Cat6 is the premium data cable, further cutting crosstalk and interference and allowing up to 10-gigabit speeds. This is the preferred choice for businesses needing fast transfer of information between computers and other devices on a network.

Cat5e is suitable for most home data cable installations. If your home is older and you would like to upgrade, ask us about home rewiring for Geelong and the surrounding areas.
