I suggest you go do some reading before claiming things...

E.g. is a good

        Ethernet over twisted pair refers to the use of a pair of copper
        cables, twisted around each other, for the physical layer of an
        Ethernet network (that is, a network in which the Ethernet
        protocol is used in the data link layer). There are several
        different standards for a copper-based physical medium. The most
        widely used are 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX, and 1000BASE-T (Gigabit
        Ethernet), running at 10 Mbit/s, 100 Mbit/s, and 1000 Mbit/s
        (1 Gbit/s) respectively.
