Network cable

Jeff is building a house and he wants to know the best way to wire up the house. Leo says that if he has bare open walls, he should put in conduit. That will future proof his home for whatever comes down the line. Then he can run Cat6 Ethernet, if he can afford it. Cat 5e is just as good, and more affordable.

Wi-Fi is still fine and Leo recommends going with mesh routers. He likes Plume, Eero, Netgear Orbi, and Ubiquity. Orbi has the highest speed.
