Hey, does anyone have any experience/suggestions of who to contact about getting Ethernet cabling run in an existing home?

Shouldn't be to difficult, its two story house but there is a double garage which gives easy access to most rooms (from below). Already have coax cable running to most (all but one) rooms that is split in the garage.

Any electrician, ideally one focused on data. You could put the job on no cowboys/builders crack. I used a firm run by a neighbour, but you could look for someone more specialist.

+1 to that.

Most telephone techs also now specialise in data cabling - more so than electricians in my opinion.
