RE: Data

I am pulling numbers together for the marketing portion of the July 802.3af
tutorial; does anyone have a cost range for pulling CAT5?  In the 802.3
spirit of not discussing absolutes, what I'm really interested in is the
ratio of the cost for pulling 14-2 ROMEX to the cost of pulling CAT5...
ballpark.  Thanks

I was basing my arguement on the cost of running 120 VAC power to a
particular location that did not already have a power drop. The cost to run
a circuit up to a point near a ceiling for a webcam or wireless access
could range between $200 and $1000 (ballpark). The range is dependent upon
the local labor costs, how far they have to run the conduit, where the
breaker panel is, and so on. It's a lot of time and money to deliver 120VAC
at 0.2A.

The cost to pull CAT5 should be documented in a number of places. In my
experience, it is by far the least expensive wiring plant.
