I've done PC repair work as a side business on the weekends for years now and recently I have a customer that wants me to install a network in a small dentist office. It is a new building and I will be installing 10 computers. There will be a computer at all 6 dental chairs one at the x-ray machine and3 in the receptionist area. The office is not large, about 50 feet by 30 feet and the conduit and boxes are installed for the cable. I just have to pull the conduit and tack it up above the dropped ceiling and of course add connectors to the ends.
My question is how much should I charge for pulling and installing cat 5 cable in this situation. I have been given all sorts of suggestions from $20/ft to $75 per cable drop. $20 per foot seems outrageous to me, but that's why I'm asking.
