Which Cable Cat5e or Cat6???
G a z . wrote:
I am thinking of renewing all the phone cables in our house, which are
wired in from our side of the BT Master Socket, I also intend to
purchase an XTE-2000 Master Faceplate together with a 68mm filtered
socket both from ADSL nation.
Now my question is this which cable would be the best for the job.
Cat5e (which I would have to buy).
Cat6 (which I can get for free in any amount)
The Cat6 is high quality *British Made* cable, made by a local firm.
So what would the more experienced amongst the regulars recommend!
The BT cable is to CW1308 specification but you can use CAT5e.
