I'm moving in a new home, and one of my requirements is to have networking cable installed for my home network. The plan is to have a network rack in the garage, then initially put in a modem/gigabit switch/FreeNAS server. However, this means that I'm having wiring put in. And, this is a job that only gets done once. The cost-conscious choice is Cat 5e cable. That cable supports Gigabit transfer speeds which should be more than adequate for all of the present applications. A 1000 foot box of that cable can run between $50-$100. Then, there is Cat 6. That would future-proof me as it was have 10 Gigabit transfer speeds when the appropriate equipment is available. That would be years down the road. A 1000 foot box would run $60-$120. However, 10 gigabit speeds would be distance limited. Of course, there is Cat 6A. That's the most expensive. Any recommendations for brand of network cabling?
