The difference between the same brand of cable, cat5 or 6, is simply bandwith. Cat5 is capable of 100Mhz of data down the wires, around 1GB p/s. Cat6 doubles that speed. What really matters is the brand of cable.

Proper installation of exterior cable requires UV resistant jacket with a messenger to support weight.
