Thanks OP, does it have any rating on it?

Rating? Like for outdoor use?

Edit: It is CAT6, so 10 gigabit should be achievable. If you consider that a “rating.” Length of cable is short enough for 10gig.

I don't know where you got that from but it's incomplete and not accurate. Cat6 can handle 10GbaseT up to 180ft: Wikipedia
That beeing said, depending on the electromagnetic noise of your environnement, the best for 10G with copper is definitely Cat7.

A 10 Gbps gigabit network can transfer 1,250 megabytes per second (10,000 megabits) or 1.25 gigabytes per second.

So it’s 1000M download speed for 10Gbps

usually think what is your internet speed and how long do you need when choice Ethernet cable.
Unless want to build fast internal network choice better cable and hardware.

They are saying the longer the cable, the speed throughput diminishes. So for CAT6, you can only achieve 10-Gigabit speeds by reducing the cable length to less than 50 meters or approx. 164 feet max.

Also any easy tip for correct terminology when it comes to bandwidth is when discussing Internet speeds use bit not byte which uses lowercase 'b': Mbps (megabit per second), Gigabit per second (Gbps), etc. When discussing storage, you generally are talking in bytes which uses uppercase B (KB,MB,GB).

if it's copper and not CCA. But cheap cable like this? hmm.... Chateau is a brand mostly found in Dollarama and A-Buck-or-Two.

Check the ends when you pick up the cables, the little tabs/clips look like they are easy to break off without any protection and it's a pain to keep the cable in the jack without recrimping another connector. I always look for the booted/snagless cables or crimp my own.

Just found that there's an easy fix for those with a broken tab and no crimper.

Damnnnn that's the old Chateau cable I was talking about in the other sale thread, not the 'new' crap stuff they are fluffing off.

Sorry but no, it's just not the correct naming convention in your first message.
For network, the standard speed unit is bits per second (bps or b/s or bit/s)
For data, the standard is bytes per second (Bps or B/s or Byte/s).

So when you write "Cat 6 1000Mbps", this is just wrong. Since then you did replace it by"1000M" but it's still not correct unfortunatley.
Cat 6 is supporting 10GBaseT and 10GBaseT is 10Gbit/s or 10000Mbit/s or 10000Mbps but definitely not 1000Mbps or 1000M.

rating like CMR, CM, CMP, I am thinking to run some cables through walls/floors.

None in Thunder Bay. Got enough cables when Walmart had various lengths on sale just a short while ago. I think I'm good for the present. Thanks though...

Well it's Internet. A lot of people are relying unverified statements :rolleyes:
In our industry, standards and guidelines are defined by engineering committees accredited by international standards organizations like ANSI, IEEE, IETF or ITU.
For this specific case, you can even find TSB-155 guidelines from ANSI/TIA. These documents are highly technical, so usually, just refer to wikipedia and not some blog from so-called expert.
