Almost certainly not, unless the cable you are replacing is the ”weak point” that is limiting your speed

No. Your internet speed is determined by your ISP / type of cables to your home. For most people, that speed will be much lower than a basic 100 BaseT cable can handle.
Faster ethernet cables will make your home network faster (traffic between computers) but only up to the speed offered by your router (1000 BaseT) and the speed of network supported by your computers (which are likely to be 100 BaseT or 1000 BaseT).
