Which cable has the highest bandwidth
 Answer by Dmitri Abaimov posted 16 Dec 2002
Dear Lucy,

Speaking about data cables, CAT6 has higher potential (maximum) bandwidth of 250MHz versus 100MHz for CAT5E.

Actual bandwidth depends on application and is pretty much within ~70MHz for conventional applications.
