Category 3 Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP)Data Cables—LAN Grade

Our Cat3 cable is an unshielded ethernet cable that relies on copper conductors to transmit data and power. These cables were the standard for ethernet cables in the 1990s and are capable of handling up to 10 MBPS. Cat3 cables have since been replaced by the newer and faster cat5 cables, so are no longer used as the standard for ethernet cables.

Today, Cat3 cables are primarily used in commercial phone systems like PBX and VOIP where fast speeds are not needed but a large number of internal phones must be connected, usually for business purposes.
