Cat6 is more expensive than Cat5 because it is rated for higher speeds. If you're buying some just for LOR don't waste your money on it.

I would make sure that it is not more expensive because even if it can handle higher speeds you will essentially have a lot of unused capacity. It may be able to handle it, but the Christmas software packages we all use cannot send it at those speeds.
