After recommending the same cabling company for the last 15 years, we have determined that since their continual mergers etc, they are no longer ideal to recommend to our clients. 

I am after a recommendation for a company who does high quality work, is neat and tidy, and reasonably priced. That doesn't mean cheap, it just means value for money. It would be ideal if they also did electrical work and knew how to install an ADSL Splitter. Pride in their work is essential, as is ethical and professional conduct. It wouldn't hurt if they had offices in other cities like Wellington or Christchurch to as we have customers in those regions.

Jobs might range from repair 1 jackpoint, or install 1 new jackpoint, to fitout of a floor for Cat5E or Cat6, with 300 Data and Power, back to a patch panel with Labeling.

We do sometimes get involved with some network cabling guys.  Not with contracting them to do work, but working along side them in server rooms etc.

And boy have I seen some shocking jobs with real cowboys.

I would recommend CableNet, they have always done good work, but typically only see them on larger jobs.

I can recommend Comserve. They did the full fitout of our floor a couple of years back, including server room patch panels etc, workstation drop poles with both data and electrical, cabling for hanging tv on wall in boardroom, TV aerials etc.

JazzTech. Not sure of their pricing, but their work has always been top notch.

Back on the market for a current recommendation. We found someone not long after I posted, and referred them a lot of business, but they let us down recently in such a way as to ensure I'd not work with them again. Particularly galling.

Google Wayne Luke or intelligent infrastructures ( his company I'm sure this is the name) decent bloke with decent prices and knows his stuff, when it comes to structured cabling.

Cable Systems are an outfit my employer have used for a long time, their service is usually pretty good - and they're electricians as well as data cablers.

For specialised cabling work (esp fibreoptics) I recommend NZData - theyre in both Auckland and Wellington.

It really depends on whether you're looking for small-customer or large-enterprise scale work as to which of the two I would recommend for your circumstance.

Cable Systems probably out of the two then, esp given your earlier comments. http://www.cablesystems.net.nz/Site/Home.ashx
