What is Cat 5e 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 1 out of 5 by from Extremely poor service by Maplin I bought the cable on 3 October 2016 using Maplin's website. Maplin immediately took the money and sent me confirmation of the purchase and the shop where I should collect the cable. I waited for the e-mail from the shop for collection time but Maplin failed to so. After 3 days of waiting I visited the shop but was told no delivery of the cable yet. So I am still waiting 11 days without any explanation from the Maplin. Be wary of Maplin: extremely poor service and waste of the time.
