 CAT 3
Can I run 100MB data on Category 3 and IBM TYPE 1 cables...?
 Answer by Dmitri Abaimov posted 04 Dec 2002
Dear Andre,

You cannot do that within 100BASE-TX, the most widely used 100Mb/s application out there, limits. You may want to try 100BASE-T4 NICs/Hubs, although I'm not really sure about how to buy those. Seems like this application pretty much disappeared already for the luck of sales.
