I never know until I make a search from website about CAT6. Actually I did know about CAT5 cable. But I never update myself on the computer field so I don't know that the network cable has comes to 6th generation. Some more, the Category 7 is sold in the market as well. How much you know about CAT6 cable? Here is what I found fromt the web search:-

CAT6 is an Ethernet cable standard defined by the Electronic Industries
Association and Telecommunications Industry Association (commonly known as
EIA/TIA). CAT6 is the 6th generation of twisted pair Ethernet cabling.

CAT6 cable contains four pairs of copper wire and unlike CAT5, utilizes
all four pairs. CAT6 supports Gigabit (1000 Mbps) Ethernet and supports
communications at more than twice the speed of CAT5e, the other popular standard
for Gigabit Ethernet cabling.
