Hi , in general , for the av home, what would be a reasonable pricing to run ethernet cable & have a good wif ap installed.
I was looking at the pricing for wifplus .
$590 for cabling to a single AP, $950 for wiring + 2x access points .
Does that sound reasonble ? seems about $450 just to run a single cable?

There are so many variables here, but if you're talking about in-wall cabling then yes there's potentially a lot of labour costs on top of the materials.

Bit like asking how long a piece of string is. There isn't an answer.


Without knowing how much work is required to run cable your question can't be answered.

That's a reasonable 'one size fits all' type price.

Probably better off just asking a sparky or data cabling company (or even some TV aerial installers will do it too) for a price for your particular scenario. And just buy yourself a Unifi AP and plug it in.
