I'm wondering if I can/should use Cat6 cables for my full T1 line running from the MPOE to the router and from the router to my firewall. Currently, it is only Cat5. AT&T is useless in supplying me with an adequate answer.

T1 does not require anything more than CAT3. CAT6 is overkill and no good reason to change out a perfectly good CAT5 cable.
