Is it worth replacing 30 year old RG59 coaxial cable with new RG6 coaxial cable? The cable being replaced connects from my cable box to the splitter on the outside of my house. I can get a 100ft roll of RG6 coaxial cable for $12 including shipping on ebay. Also is it possible to install F connectors without the compression tool?

Upon further research, turns out I actually have RG6 and not RG59 cable. I have this exact cable installed
"E83032 F6SSVV (UL) CATV" so no use replacing RG6 with RG6
