There is effectively no difference between RG6 vs RG6/U other then the 'U'. [Which stands for unbalanced...]. For all practical purposes it is one and the same. Just let the tech who comes out, that it is RG6 and not quad-shield so they can put the correct 'F' connector on.
Actually I always though the U was outdoor UV/underground rated.
Direct burial/underground coax has a gel in it to keep moisture out.
Yeah, and it sticks to your fingers.
All coax is unbalanced, so that makes no sense.
Looking around on google the U is either Utility, or Universal. Just Marketing.
