I asked this question earlyer "Using cat 6 cables throughout my interace with PC. From modem to router to PC.Will this automatically improve my internet speeds and reception". They said no. Could you please elaborate some.

Let me ask you a question.

If you are driving in a 30mph limit will you go faster in a Ferrari than in a Ford Fiesta?

✔ Best Answer
Definitely faster in a Fiesta.. Pushing it in Ferrari is just asking to nabbed... The mere sight of a Ferrari would alert the chaps to be on the alert/ready to nab you if you went over the 30 limit...

Analogy is based on not exceeding the speed limit. :-) with the point being gig is gig whether using cat5e or cat6

What is your internet (ISP) subscription? 1, 10, 20, 50, 100 MB??
If less than 100MB Cat 5(e) will do.
The quality/speed of your ISP/internet connection is not going to change with CAT6.
If you have troubled or slow internet, check with your ISP.

Hi Wanderer:

It was just to good to miss...

All part of a misspent childhood listening to the Goon Show and assorted RAF humour - all of which later spawned first Michael Bentine's (one the "original" Goons) Square World on BBC tv (I worked on each series); and which in turn led to Python and later Faulty Towers...

Mind you if the Fiesta was also red.. then equally a serious risk of being nabbed by "the chaps" as in a Ferrari.. The alleged evidence is that a red car get nicked variously more than any other colour...

LOL I know it was too choice to neglect :-)

I bought a red Volt last year so I am also testing that theory.

Would be interesting to know your opinion of the Volt when you've had it a while... And of course the red car theory too...

Wish you well to enjoy it in 2015 - and long beyond too.

Red cars don't get specially targeted - it's just that more bad drivers buy them than any other colour. ;)
