I just signed up for Cox Cable's Gigablast package (1 Gbps)! Same price as their 100 Mbps, they have to do some rewiring in the house...can't wait for the blazing speed!

Good luck with that. Do they guarantee 1 gbps? What kind of cost are you looking at? What are you planning on you machine, considering the physical max on cat 5E is 100 mbps? Do they have any throttles on data usage?

Man, lotsa questions here

Cat 6 cable is full-on certified to handle Gigabit speeds--it's meant to handle it and it does it the best. It's also suitable for any 10-Gigabit uses that may come along someday; although at that point, you're pushing the limits of Cat 6. And let's not get into Cat 7 and it's fairyland of 40-Gigabit speeds.

i've had some rooms inside and outside the house fitted with Cat 6 cable. so 1 to 10gb internal isn't a problem and future proof for me, mind you, you need to raid some SDD's to keep up if you wish for data flying around anywhere near those speeds

i'll soon be on 200mb BB via cable, so worth the effort, not that i did it

1. Speed is variable 900 Mbps to 1 Gbps, 1 Terabyte cloud storage, Wi-Fi for the house
2. Cost is for 2 HD TV's (300 channels + HBO), Internet, Digital land line w/unlimited long distance US & Canada
3. Still planning, they are installing at high-speed router
4. $174 per month guaranteed for 3 years, $6 a day, pretty cheap for daily entertainment, information and education!
I'm excited!

Yeah, but does your NIC handle that speed? Not trying to be argumentative, seriously curious. Most don't. So what types of interface are you using? And anything over 5E is usually not connected to a terminal device.

<edit>

Hmm, looking while typing, it appears I may be a bit behind the times.

It can handle that much but then they allow you only 2 gigabytes a month!!
