Copper Wires vs twisted cable

Hi

currently I have the standard copper wires running into my home and connecting to the master socket. I was wondering would the 4 pair cable or twisted wires cable lead to a better interent connection? I'm currently getting full speeds of 76mbps but since the copper wiring is quite old I thought maybe twisted cable would lead to a better internet connection for example reduced ping for online gaming.

Re: Copper Wires vs twisted cable

Which cable are you talking about?

Openreach only used twisted copper, or if you’re luck Aluminium Cable.

@Starwire2000 Dropwire 3?

@VishalM Won't make any difference, even if it did, Openreach won't change it.

Yeah could be, still a few Drop Wire 6’s out there.

A photo of said Cable would help identify it.
