  • 14. 
    Two twisted wire pairs (four wires). It's the oldest type and is only voice grade — it isn't rated for data communication. People refer to it as plain old telephone service (POTS). Before 1983, this was the standard cable used throughout the North American telephone system. POTS cable still exists in parts of the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) and supports signals limited to the 1MHz frequency range.

     Four twisted wire pairs (eight wires), rated for 250MHz. Became a standard back in June 2002. You would usually use it as riser cable to connect floors together. If you're installing a new network in a new building, there's no reason to use anything but this category UTP cabling as well as running fiber runs between floors.
