Is it worth the extra expense to use CAT6 cables instead of CAT5e?
rtrembley 1 year ago
We are putting in a small network at one of our satellite offices, and I am curious if it is worth buying Cat6 cable. We have at least a couple of hundred feet of Cat5e sitting unused. Would you just use up the Cat5e cable, or is it worth spending the money on the Cat6? It's really not that much of an additional expense, but you know, penny wise, penny earned and all that.
