Get the most from your network by using the latest in networking cables! Our range of Cat8 flat low profile cables run much faster previous network cables such as Cat 5e Cat6 Cat6a and Cat 7 but are backwardly compatible. With a height of just 2.8mm they re perfect for running under carpets or floor boards.
Perfect for the latest gaming consoles such as Xbox Series X or the PS5 as well as PC gaming or any other connection that requires a fast Ethernet connection.
So what is the difference between Cat 5e Cat 6 Cat 7 and Cat 8 cables? There are two main factors to look at when comparing network cables. The first is the speed (bandwidth) and the other the frequency (MHz).
The Speed determines how much data (bandwidth) can be sent through the cable. Cat 8 cables have a maximum speed/bandwidth of 25 000 to 40 000 Mbit/s but Cat 7 carries a lower 10000Mbit/s. Cat 6 is 1000Mbits and Cat5e up to 1000Mbits.
The Frequency or MHz indicates how often the signal can pass through the cable. Cat 8 cables have a very high frequency at a huge 2000Mhz. Cat 7 600Mhz. Cat6a 500Mhz. Cat6 250Mhz and cat 5 cables 100Mhz. Overall a Cat 8 cable will allow more bandwidth at a faster rate than the previous networking cables.
Cat5e Has a speed to 1000 Mbit/s (1 Gig) 100mhz Cat6 Has a speed to 1000 Mbit/s (1 Gig) 250mhz Cat6a Has a speed to 10000 Mbit/s (10 Gig) 500mhz Cat7 Has a speed to 10000 Mbit/s (10 Gig) 600mhz Cat 8 Has a speed to 25000 - 40000 Mbit/s (25-40 Gig) 2000mhz
