What's the difference between RG6 and RG59 cables

Print page

 Both RG-6 and RG-59 cables are widely used in residential settings, especially when it comes to TV. But while RG-59 is the norm for standard Cable (CATV), RG-6 is the coax that has what it takes to transmit digital video signals and satellite TV. When you compare the two types side by side, RG-6 has a larger core conductor, thicker dielectric insulation, and anywhere from 2 to 4 layers of shielding, versus RG-59’s one. These physical differences are what make RG-59 best suited to low-frequency transmissions and short cable runs, and RG-6 the ideal choice to carry high frequency signals over long distances.
