when you get like cable internet and the cable guy were to run it not to the box but to the poll you get faster connection and they don't filter it,
As a rule, I generally do not use cables supplied by vendors. I make my own, but I have yet to see one supplied as a CAT5 cable be CAT3.
if you have time Warner Cable your default wire that come with your cable Modem for turbo is cat 3
You obviously didn't undertsand. There is no electrical reason why voice, an analog signal, cannot be run over CAT6. The speed's you're talking about is the maximum transmission rate, analog signals are not affected by such things and could be transmitted just fine over them.
if you have att dsl your dsl Modem comes with a cat 5. by default.
and we're talking about fiber optic
cat 6 is running on 500 MHz Data Only
Cat 5 is running on 400 MHz voice and data
Ping rates are rather meaningless.
i can tell you that i do see a difference cause i have it and and i did wanted to make my connection a lot faster and this was like a couple of years ago, and it still dose the job for me, i do a lot of torrent and mutimedia, i use to do a lot of gaming and my ping was less then 100 most of the time it was close to 15
You obviously didn't even really to bother and read this thread from the beginning as had you, you'd have know that this has nothing to do with connection speeds from an ISP. The OP was talking about testing a connection directly between localized equipment. If you're using auto-negotiated equipment, it doesn't matter what kind of cable you're using, you will NEVER get the maximum transfer rate out of it. For that, you'd need to get managed equipment and properly set speed and duplex.
your cat 6 is basically going to connect to your router, or your computer what however you configure it
you need proof and explanation
