It is called RG6. It is in the tested specification, swept for 3GHz.

Most any new coax you buy is 3ghz. Old coax usually works just fine. I have some belden from the 80's I still use. just because it is not tested to 3ghz does not mean it can't carry it. To me a lot of the new cable "appears" to be of a lessor quality then the old.

I haven’t bought any RG-6 for a long time. But like what the Mack stated, it’s probably all 3 gig rated now.

The last time I bought some, the center conductor was pure copper. (Belden) which I personally prefer. But copper clad aluminum (CCA) is fine also.

Solid signal . xxx perfect vision quad shield solid copper. Good stuff.
Not according to Dish Network. They SAY it fails at 3Ghz... I say it fails at the point where it says DirecTV on the jacket........ I use it all the time, no problems

Just to make sure I understand everything correctly.
Solid Copper or Copper Clad Steel:
Doesn't matter.
Dual shield or Quad shield:
Doesn't matter.
3Ghz:
Any coax cable probably supports it.
It sounds like the same cheap coax the cable company uses, is that right?
