One V6 box now has cat 7 ethernet connected to it. And my other has cat 6 ethernet connected to it. My virgin media provided powerline boosters have cat 6 ethernet connected from my superhub 6 router. I've upgraded from cat 5E ethernet. Are cat 6 and 7 better for faster speeds and connection 🤔. I have actually noticed my connect app and TV control app load quicker now.

Oops my mistake.
I have the older superhub 4.
My ethernet leads are cat 6 & 7 . No longer cat 5E. I have noticed the difference in my speed and connection since using ethernets cat 6 & 7. I found the cat 5E ethernet slow. Compared to the 6&7. I believe cat 7 ethernet is backward compatible to the cat 5E & 6 . Correct me if I'm wrong 🤔
Well... that is unique then - what does the sticker on its base state what it is ? Can you post it up.
This is my old Superhub2 (sticker) - there was no SH 3/4/5 - they became Hub3, Hub4, Hub5.) I never upgraded either 🙂
You may have noticed a difference when swapping from Cat5e to cat6 but more than like pseudo effect as technically your devices wouldn't be any faster unless your Cat5e cable was negotiating at 10/100
There will be zero difference between cat6 and cat7 of 8 in domestic set up especially using any VM equipment.
Also note worth noting 90+% tvs are fitted with 10/100 eth adapter so changing to cat6 wouldn't have any affect. Unless you were using cat5e over a long distance
I’m jumping on this thread, think I have cat5e Ethernet cable from my pic to the hub, it seems Cat6 is the way to go but there are so many makes out there.
What the best I should go for and should it be Cat a or Cat e?
these are good
