  1. i know gigabit doesn't use Cat 6, they use Cat 5e. so is there any plans/standards for Cat 6 cable beyond ATM networks?

    I found an excellent FAQ here.

    Cat 6 cable is being installed in favour of Cat 5e.
    and here is the rational for the install of cat 6
    I would like to thank Phant for his wonderful recommendation to use google to look for the info. My professor told me some outdated information that I thought was current and "duh" it was not.
