Typically you'll see $120-160 per drop, depending on the type of cabling and distances, etc.  Then you'll see $75/hr for labor charges per installer.  Depending on which state this is in, most states require an Alarm or Low Voltage contractor's license before one can legally install any cabling, and this includes network cabling.

Not sure this is true.  
My State requires a license for Alarm and Survellience because a persons life can be in danger if it isn't install properly.  They do not require a license for network installations.

the $120-$160 per drop is a good range.

The point in mentioning was to ensure due diligence is done.  If your state doesn't require, then that's wonderful, but there are states that do.  Typically the licensing, as I've seen it, falls underneath the Alarm licensing board for low voltage, which varies from state to state.

Feel free to check out your state's requirements online if there are any questions about what's required.
