    Unless you are pushing more than 4 HD video streams at the same time, there is not difference in speed.
  2. Hello,

    If your talking about network cables - Cat 5e and Cat 6 cables both can do Gigabit (1000Mb) connections.

    Cat 6 has slightly better transmission abilities than Cat 5e - so there would be less network I/O errors with Cat 6 vs Cat 5e.

  3. Found this with a google search: CAT5 can take a maximum bandwidth of 100MHz, CAT6 is capable of 400MHz and CAT7 625MHz. CAT8 is capable of carrying a bandwidth of up to 1400MHz
  4. Cat6 has longer range then Cat5e, you will not see any speed difference between both
