Hi, in today’s FAQ video, we will answer the question, "What's the difference between 75 Ohm RG11 Cable vs 50 Ohm 400 Cable? There are lots of options when it comes to cable. In general, it is best to use a high quality cable that has the least amount of signal loss as possible. Wilson Pro recommends the use of 50 ohm 400 cable for most commercial jobs. 400 cable provides low loss while being able to handle high amounts of cellular traffic. In some cases, RG-11 can be used and is used because it is already pre-wired in most buildings. The reason why RG11 cables are most popular pre-installed cables is that they are an acceptable standard for typical audio visual electronics. RG-11 is 75 Ohm and has about 1 -2 dB of additional loss per 100 feet of cable. Also, 75 Ohm cables does not handle as much cellular traffic as 50 Ohm. Therefore, in higher use situations, you can see reduction in data speeds. Watch video below for illustration.
