    There are several different variations of the cable that all claim to meet the Cat6 specification. There's no need to buy the most expensive one.

    Beware on amazon - there's quite a few on there that claim to be Cat6 but if you go through the reviews you find someone has discovered they're CCA (copper clad aluminium) not solid copper strands as required under the CAT6 standard.
