I found a 1000 ft spool of cat 6 on the ground by a dumpster, and I still couldn't compete against this price if I wanted to make and sell Ethernet cable

Planning to install Cat6 from a switch to livingroom and every bedroom in the house. What's a better route, attic or crawl space? I was able to get the cable technician to wire the coax up the attic and down the garage because it's somewhat centralized and easy access to the attic, and won't be unsightly having bunch of CAT6 wires stemming from the switch.

Anyone attempted similar project knows the cost to hire someone to do it?

Wouldnt Cat6a be better to use? Cat6 runs at a maximum bandwidth of 250 MHz. ... Cat6A is fully compatible with Cat6, but it escalates performance in three key areas. First, Cat6A can operate at up to 500 MHz. The extra bandwidth doubles the effective distance at which the cable can maintain 10 Gbps — up to 100 meters.

Ordered 3 with $1.50 digital credit.

Fine. I'll be the one to say it....

The anti-snag boots SUCK! Compared to no boot, you have to press like a gorilla to unlatch the thing. And though I understand the purpose, I can't recall one time in my life I've had an ethernet cable get snagged any different than any cable would. Certainly never a time a said "Dang. Wish this tab was protected." It makes total sense on the surface, but is a solution a problem I've never had. I have, however, darn near ripped ethernet jacks out of their socket because I thought I was pushing on the boot hard enough and clearly was not.
I've had at least a couple of cables missing a clip with nothing holding them in any longer over the years.

Monoprice 75 foot Cat6 cable $8.79. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product...UTF8&psc=1
I got this and works well. I would use it for permanent installation because locking mechanism is hard to disengage with my fingers. A spoon handle worked well at disconnecting the connector.
When removing the cable from an Ethernet port, If you push the connector into the port first, then press the boot down, then remove - it will come off easily. The trick is to push it in first because there is a little notch on top that prevents the boot from pressing down accidentally- which is what you do if you just push it down when ejecting the cable….

Quote from gemniii42 :
Cat 6 standard is 23AWG, this is 24, thus thinner.
EIA/TIA 568B,2-1. Spec is 22 to 24 SOLID AWG for Backbone. 22 to 26AWG for Patch cables which this is. There is also "mini CAT6" which is 28AWG for short runs.

Again, patch cables aren't for long haul, and the difference from a 24 to a 23 will be nearly impossible to tell the difference on a standard patch cable. Most issues with cabling are at the connector and termination.
I've been certifying cabling for over 25 Years, and I'm a certified by Fluke Networks, and Panduit to do cabling (Copper and Fiber) Certifications.

I find that Monoprice cables are decent, not the best, but far from the worse.

Because CAT7 doesn't exist(!)... it's a non-existent "standard" used by Marketing.
A lot of the cheap Amazon cables (especially ones marked CAT7, usually are CCA cables, and therefore wouldn't meet CAT3, 5, 6 standards ever which call for Copper only.

I did it once to test the cable, before a permanent installation behind a wall. But I disconnect Ethernet cable only when changing out equipment. WiFi has gotten so fast that there is no need to plug in an Ethernet cable and many portable don't even have a Ethernet port.
Wifi still not close to cable when multiple devices are considered with any reasonable amount of load.

Though I'll admit to the average person it probably doesn't matter at all.

Cat 5e and 6 will run gigabit. Check the writing on the cable in your box if you can, it'll be marked. If it's 5e, you can save a few bucks on patch cords.
