The following cabling price list contains pricing for voice and data labor rates, trip charges, and moves. Cable type and pricing will be determined by the location and quantity of cables needed, based on the building infrastructure and equipment requirements.

Please note that there has been a recent increase in price, due to the increased cost of copper.

  • Labor - Hourly Rate: $45
  • Overtime Hourly Rate: $70
  • Move a Jack (voice or data): $60
  • Trip Charge*: $55

Important Notes about Cabling Service


Once the requisite information is received, Telecommunications Services will work to complete the request within five business days.

Note: Occasionally, there are circumstances beyond Baylor’s control that will prolong the installation of new cables (asbestos abatement, non Baylor-owned properties, etc.). In those cases, Telecommunications will keep the customer informed of the order status.

When the survey is completed, BCM’s cabling contractor will process the request. A blueprint may be required for multiple cables. When their work is complete, the contractor will notify the Telecommunications Services team for final processing and notification of the customer.

Note: A 8-foot station cable is included in all new network cable installations. Additional network patch cables are available in 10-foot and 15-foot lengths using the same process. A cost center and authorized signature must be provided on all forms.
