I would also consider using cat6 instead of cat5. No point running old cable in a new run. Perhaps you will save some money, but you might come to regret it down the road...

This is solid copper, great for IP cameras. For IP cameras, CCA CAT6 is junk when compare with this solid copper CATe.

In a residential setting, this isn't as much of a concern.

Plenum cable is made for just that, running a cable in a plenum which is basically non-existent in a residential structure.

Romex wiring (NM) isn't allowed in commercial buildings unless it's wood framed. Romex is ubiquitous in houses. Don't get bent out of shape about using non plenum data cable in your house.

Before you jump on this deal make sure you understand the limitations of the RISER type of cable, especially in the code-conscious installations.

The 1,000 ft box is $59 for those that need it. Even better with 10 off 50 coupon.

I concur. The price difference is easily offset by future proofing

Difference, for those wondering, is that Cat6A will carry 10G to the full 100m length, while Cat6 will carry 10G to something like 50m. Cat5e does not officially support 10G, but some people have used it with success for runs about 25m.

As far as future goes, there is 2.5Gbps that is designed to work with Cat5e.

Looks like it's copper instead of CCA. Most Southwire is made in the states if anyone cares about that.

Also agree. I used cat5e in a full house remodel 10 years ago - while to date I haven't needed beyond Gigabit ethernet speeds, I have a feeling the next decade will come up with some things that might prove necessary for cat6.

It's not just Ethernet data either, other digital or low-voltage electrical. I ran extra cabling and have used spare cat5e runs in the walls for thermostat wire, doorbell wire, digital audio signals, and HDMI. Extending HDMI for example, earlier adapters needed two cat5e cables, but newer ones can use one cat6. Cat5e might still work with those adapters for short runs, but as 4K, HDR, and higher-def audio signals start running over HDMI, who knows?

Ironically a key part of the remodel plans, the one thing no longer used with my cat5e is RJ11 jacks for voice - we dropped the landline and I've repurposed all the RJ11 voice jacks to RJ45 for data over time.
