Dear Gus,

I do not know if a simple answer to this question exists. Cabling installs have a lot of labor factor in them, which varies in quantities wildly from building to building, as well as varies in cost from place to place.

The price per drop (here on East Coast) may be anywhere between $70 to $400, depending on the environment and type of cable used. So, to answer this question in your particular case, just call two or three cabling vendors in the area and have them send you their bids.
