Real-world cabling and wiring prices from BuyerZone buyers

We regularly survey BuyerZone users to ask how their purchases went. We've used their most recent responses to provide a sampling of actual prices that businesses paid for their cabling and wiring needs.

Costs for cabling and wiring jobs are based on the number of drops (or "end points") that require voice and data connections. These costs vary based on how many drops you need, the quality of cables you get, and other installed equipment, but your per-drop costs get lower as you add more drops to a project.

A key factor in how much you'll pay will be your current wiring status. Typically, you'll pay less for completely new cabling and wiring systems than you will for jobs that require installers to gut and rewire an existing setup. In addition, you'll get more palatable pricing options if vendors can easily pull cables through conduits and ceiling plenums.
