Is there any point in upgrading from 100Mbps CAT5 to 1Gbps CAT6?
Posted on 2013-01-15
A client with a very small SBS 2008 network (6 users) has asked me to upgrade their network to 1Gbps and I wonder if they will see any real difference locally.
They currently have a mixture of CAT5e and CAT6 cabling, so the CAT5e would need replacing along with the switches. All the PCs and the server have Gbit cards in them.
Would they really notice any significant improvement. I asked the same question in the past. albeit several years ago, and received a resounding no?
They still have 2 XPP PCs - any advantage in upgrading these to Win 7 Pro, like the others?
