PC Tech Go: Basic Differences Between CAT5, CAT5E, CAT6, CAT6e, CAT6a Cables

What is the difference between 5,5e,6,6e,6a ethernet cables

What is the difference between 5,5e,6,6e,6a ethernet cables? One guess would be the speed, and that is correct. The speed of these cables is directly associated with the frequency they are able to carry and the distance the frequency can be maintained before it deteriorates or becomes weakened by outside interference called noise.

The number of twists, the thickness of the copper strands wrapped inside, the shielding, type of shielding, and the even the modular ends all play a role in how far a frequency can transmit and what ethernet speeds can be achieved.
