You need a new Ethernet cable that slim and flat so that you can avoid tangles and save space Then you might consider this Gigabit Ethernet Cable. This specially designed flat cable makes it easy to fit between spaces, improving the look of your home or office.
Note: Due to lighting and orientation, the color might be a little bit different from what you will get.
Some questions might pop-out in our head. Can we use Gigabit cable instead of Megabit or CAT-5 cable Yes! Of course Gigabit cable can work on Megabit or CAT-5 network. It is backward compatible with previous specifications, which means it can be effectively used with CAT-5 network. These cables use the same end piece known as RJ-45, which is capable of connecting to Ethernet jack on a computer, router, etc. They can be plugged in to the same ports.
Besides, you can use this ethernet cable with Raspberry Pi! We have tested this ethernet cable with Raspberry Pi 4B and the result is incredible. Just plug-in and you can use it.
Here is the iperf3 test result with Raspberry Pi 4B as server and another Raspberry Pi 4B as client. It reaches 940mbps, and that if what you expect for Gigabit Ethernet. (WiFi is disabled for both the RPi 4B)
