Default Coaxial cable

Hi all, the coaxial cable that I had put in my basement isn't the same quality that you normally get from the cable company. It seems more flimsy and not as stiff. Is that a problem? Does cheaper coaxial cable mean lower quality signal going to the tv?

it says "Securelink R66 DUAC shielded CAT0 18AWG ROHS FT4" the cat0 doesn't make sense, but that's what it says. maybe its cat8, not sure.

It's not CAT0 it's CATV.

It's listed as RG6, 18g, FT4. It should be just fine.
