ethernet wiring, which cable to choose?
Comcast technician came to my newly bought house, and said the house has dish network cables, which can not support comcast internet. Comcast does not do inside wall fish since 5 years ago, and suggests I hire some contractor do it.
So I am going to hire a contractor install both internet coax cables and ethernet cables (with a patch panel) for my house. It's a 1800 sqft one-story house in SF bay area. Which ethernet cable I'd better to choose-- cat7, cat6a, or cat6e, which would be good enough for the next 10 years?
I called one technician. He does cat6 and cat6e ethernet cable wiring, and he said there is no cat6a. But later I found cat6a on internet, which performs better than cat6e and is thicker, much heavier, does not like normal zip ties, requires a bigger bend radius, and needs more testing. I don't know if it'd still better to use cat6a, or cat6e is good enough in my house for the next 10 years.
Any input is greatly appreciated.
