How Much Does Home Ethernet Installation Cost?

On average, it costs between $145.18 to $163.88 per data run to install Ethernet wiring for a home network.
Price Factors for Installing Home Ethernet Wiring

1. Number of data runs. A contractor will take into account the number of locations you want Ethernet installed in your walls. They may also call this “per drop."

2. Accessibility. If your house is being built new, and there’s no drywall up yet, you could pay as low as half to two-thirds of the price listed above. A contractor will be able to do the wiring work in a much shorter amount of time if the walls are already opened up.

3. Complications. Wiring in older homes, through plaster walls, or to outdoor locations (such as for a security camera) could make the installation work slightly more difficult for a contractor.

4. Your location. The estimates you receive from contractors may vary from the national range given above depending on if you live in a big city with high labor costs, the suburbs, or a rural difficult-to-reach area.

5. Equipment. Depending on how advanced you want your home network to be, there is a range of price points for equipment. If you’re installing Ethernet cabling for the first time throughout your home, you may also want a router, switch, and patch panel.

6. Repairing and painting walls. Hopefully using the drop system there won’t be too much damage to your walls, but there is a chance your walls will have to be opened up further in order to access the wiring.

7. Related work. Do you want help setting up your full home network? What about your audio/visual systems? Depending on the professional you hire to do the wiring, they can also help with these services.
