The next choice we need to make concerns the data speeds required of the data plan. Both Cat 5e and Cat 6 are generally regarding as working with data speeds up to 1 Gigabit. The difference between cat5 vs. cat 6 for frequency range is a whooping 250 MHz while the 5e is limited to only 100mhz. This allows someone using a Cat 6 cable to transfer data more than 100 percent faster than the Cat 5e.  This is mostly important for transferring large amounts of data over a short period of time. 

The reality is your data network will only operate at the speed of your slowest device so very few networks will find the cost of Cat 6 worth the premium price. We offer Cat 6 because some buyers simply want the best and Cat 6 is the most reliable at delivering speed on a Gigabit network.

Now it is time to select your choice of data speed:
