What is the difference betweeen Cat 5e and Cat 5E. The building contrator has told me that Cat 5E(big E) costs much more than Cat 5e(little e). Thanks!|

I think both refer to the same. According to the TIA/EIA-568B wiring standard, this Category is called 5e (little e).
Of course, there should be no big price difference only because there is a "big E" printed on the cable jacket.
Hope it helps
