Cat6 has replaced Cat5e as the entry-level network cabling for business use. Thanks to improved technology and a higher demand, the material cost for Cat6 has plummeted. The majority of businesses now adopt Cat6 as their minimum standard.
Cat6 transfers packets of data at a higher frequency compared to the older Cat5e standard, therefore providing greater bandwidth. The resulting user experience is faster, particularly when using multiple applications at once.
For this reason we recommend Cat6 network cabling as the minimum network cabling standard for today’s commercial environment.
