got my house getting rewired next week and gonna get the sparky to route some network cables for me from sitting room and bedrooms now was just going to do CAT 6 but now theres 6A and 7 ! espically handy to sream 4k stuff and can use to send hdmi stuff etc also if needed
current plan is to run 4 ports from lounge to loft and two port from each bedroom to loft so 8 ports in total, each room will have dataport connect to euro module type socket and all cables in loft terminate onto rj45 then they will get plugged into my gigabit unmanaged switch (will update to 10gb when needed)
Router will be cabled in loft also by means of extension from master socket instead of currently in sitting room via same method
i reckon will need 100-150 Metres of cable and then 8 rj45 connectors and 8 dataports with faceplates
So am i better going CAT 7 now or CAT 6a ? difference in cable costs as i dont need huge amounts seems to be about £50-80 and wheres good quality cable at reasonable price ?
dataports with faceplates pref brushed steel any recommends ?
Anything obvious iv'e missed or got completely wrong lol
