For reliable, high-speed data transmission browse our range of Ethernet cables by Alpha Wire, Belden.
An ethernet cable is a type of network cable which directly connects a device to the internet, such as computers, gaming consoles, and smart tv's. Ethernet cabling provides a highly stable connection with fast speeds, offering a more consistent connection than Wi-Fi. They usually connect from a router. There are different types available, such as Cat5, Cat5E, Cat6, Cat6A, Cat7, and Cat8, which vary in terms of their structure and signal transmission strength or speed.
