Data and av cables

I'm looking for somebody to lay Network, Sky, HDMI and USB cables. These cables need to be laid under the floor then connected into appropriate wall sockets - Is this the type of work Electricians do?

5 Answers from MyBuilder Electricians

cable routing in safe zones and seperation of
different catergories is one of the subjects
learned when training to be an electrician.
though further training may be necessary in the data,
comunication and network fields etc, but I cannot
see much skill involved in simply connecting the
cables into the required points.

I know that I carry out that type of work,would think most electricians would aswell.

That is a very simple task,more electricians are doing this type of work now, so you should be able to find someone to help.

Something I specialise in too

Yes, as long as they dont run alongside exsisting electrical cables, as this may cause interference on your data systems
