Before Cat 5 everything was based mostly on telephone wiring. Cat 3 was telephone grade cabling and was an inexpensive and ample manner of driving a 10 mbps network whereas sustaining a constant Cat three infrastructure for both voice and data. Cat 4 was higher quality than Cat three, however was quick lived because it didn’t actually do any­thing aside from ship 10 mbps a bit cleaner and very little value distinction for the cabling.
