Cables, unless their bad don't usually effect computer performance. HDMI cables depending on length could effect video quality when connecting to a High definition TV. What exactly are you trying to accomplish?

If you have gigabit Ethernet its best to use CAT6 cable, unless your going extreme distances (beyond the length of normal house wiring) length shouldn't be an issue.

What type of internet connection are you currently using? Many people have Cable internet which is a broadband connection provided by a cabled connection as opposed to dialup or DSL which are supplied thru phone lines. Perhaps that is the cable you are referring to?

Using CAT6 cables instead of CAT5 in your network might let you see some speed improvement when transferring files between 2 computers on the same local network but probably would have zero effect on the speed of your internet connection since even CAT5 cables are capable of speeds greater than most any internet connection.
