 Cat-5 cables
I am building a new home and it was recommended, by a friend, that I should use cat-5 wiring. Can you give me some information about cat-5 and if and where it should be installed in a new home.

Dear Glenn,
As an answer for general questions about cabling categories, there is a document on this site in FAQ section called 'What Cabling Category to choose'. I suggest that you review the document, and if you'll have any more questions, I'll be glad to answer them.
With best regards,
Dmitri Abaimov, RCDD
