What is Cat5e cable?
These category 5e (Cat5e) cables use an unshielded twisted pair (UTP) structure to reduce outside interference and are typically used in networking applications. The maximum certified data transfer rate of this cable is 1000Mbps, making UTP Cat5e cables suitable for 10Base-T (10Mbps), 100BaseTX (100Mbps) and 1000Base-T Gigabit (1000Mbps) networks. The maximum length of a single run of cable can be up to 100m before a network switch or repeater is needed. Cat5e cables, as well as carrying data, can carry telephone signals for IP phones or Video.

Why would I use this cable?
Ethernet cables are typically used in creating a network of wired devices. This is commonly achieved by using Ethernet ports to connect equipment and devices to a network switch or internet router. This connection then provides you with access to a local area network (LAN) or the internet. It offers a high speed, uninterruptable connection that is ideal for gaming, media streaming or video conferencing.
Ethernet cables are available in different colours, which lets you co-ordinate network cables from different devices. Helping you in keeping your network cables organised and tidy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My old laptop doesn't work with our state of the art wifi system. So i popped down to maplins for help. Bought the network patch cable 25m to connect dinosaur laptop to the router. Now i am getting lightening data transfers all around my large open plan apartment. This cable has given my old equipment a new lease of life. Highly recommended cable, but get advice from maplins staff before buying.
