I need to redo my basement for cable.

1) Does Rogers use RG6 with regular shielding? I'm guessing they don't use quad shielded.

2) Is it OK to run RG6 along CAT5e? I have a Gigabit network.

P.S. If I get cable broadband, will Rogers necessarily send a tech out to my house?

I'm also considering adding Rogers cable broadband (10 Mbps down 0.5 up) through TekSavvy, but the run from the outside box is RG59. Since the box outside is directly below my home office, I could theoretically run a new line outside the house with RG6 directly into my home office, with a run of 30 feet.

If Rogers sends a tech out, I'd get him to do this. Or do you just get the cable modem and plug it in and hope everything works?

If you're adding Rogers Express, you might as well have the tech out. They'll add the appropriate splitter (should be the first one at the demarcation point) for the broadband and they'll probably run the cable up and into the office too. Ask them to check the signal at your various TVs too.
