Are you courious how cables can make a good gift idea?

Ethernet cables can be use at home or at your business. Mutiple colors are available in bulk.

They are the gifts for a technology geek. A person who loves techonlogy will be happy to get some good reliable ethernet cables.

Category 5 cable, commonly known as Cat 5, is a twisted pair cable type designed for high signal integrity. Many such cables are unshielded but some are shielded. This type of cable is often used in structured cabling for computer networks such as Ethernet, and is also used to carry many other signals such as basic voice services, token ring, and ATM (at up to 155 Mbit/s, over short distances).

Cat 6- Category – 6, is a cable standard for Gigabit Ethernet and other network protocols that is backward compatible with the Category 5/5e and Category 3 cable standards. It provides performance of up to 250 MHz.

So what kind of cables are around?
