I'm thinking about upgrading to CAT6E

    Does anyone know if it's worth it to upgrade my ethernet cable from CAT5E up to CAT6E? This has been bugging me for quite a while. I keep reading about how there's not much of a difference in the two for everyday use, but if there wasn't a big difference in the two then why is CAT6E ethernet wiring being advertised as a plus in new houses? Again, I just keep getting conflicting answers on this and I'm not sure what to do. I want the best internet possible, but I don't want to get something that's not going to make a noticeable difference.

    Cat5e vs. Cat6 good read. You might have already seen this as it's the first google search result but if not I think that should answer your question. Unless you are a heavy internet user (crazy downloads and massive uploads regularly) I don't think it much matters, but seems like Cat6 is a little better.
