In the overview below you can see the differences:

Cat5e – Has a speed to 1.000 Mbit/s, 100mhz

Cat6 – Has a speed to 1.000 Mbit/s, 250mhz

Cat6a – Has a speed to 10.000 Mbit/s, 500mhz

Cat7 – Has a speed to 10.000 Mbit/s, 1.000mhz

The big difference between Cat6 and Cat7 is the frequency. As you may have already seen, a Cat7 cable and a Cat6 cable have the same speed. However, the Cat7 has a higher frequency than the Cat6.

The frequency indicates how often the signal can pass through the cable.

At a frequency of 1,000 MHz, 10,000 Mbit / s can therefore be transferred 10,000 times per second 10,000 Mbit / s. 

A Cat7 cable will therefore be able to transfer data faster than a Cat6 cable.
