This, 5e is cheaper and under 100m it will be perfectly fine. I've got a mix of 6 and 5 and honestly haven't seen any speed drops.Not sure about the obsession with CAT6 for gigabit uses, considering it's not the cheapest cable. CAT5e is rated for gigabit at 100m so that'll easily do the job at 30m.
With that said, if you don't care about cost or the price difference is minimal, nothing wrong with going CAT6.
I'm well aware. I was responding to Matt91 who was responding to this:CAT5e can do that easily. You're more likely to struggle with switching capacity than have issues in the cabling side.
Right right, I'm with you. Just a bit slow to catch up.I'm well aware. I was responding to Matt91 who was responding to this:
So I need to run a 30m ethernet cable from the ONT. Any recommendations on a good cable or where I can get the cable for a fairly decent price? The ones on Takealot have ok reviews but some complaints that the cable quality is not goodmybroadband.co.za
