Factors that may impact the cost:

1. New wiring needs

If you prefer to have your phone jack in a certain location, you may need new wiring routed to it if there is no phone jack already there. The easiest way to add new wiring, but one which causes damage to your walls, is for the electrician to cut directly into your drywall to insert the cabling. The other way is to have them run cable underneath your baseboards.

Ask your electrician about your options if new wiring is required, and choose what works best for you in terms of your long-term electrical needs or larger renovation plans.

2. Number of phone jacks

If you want to have more than one phone base installed in your home for better coverage or convenience, you can have the electrician install more than one phone jack in separate locations. Some electricians charge a discounted rate for each additional jack if you are doing the work all at once.

3. Number of phone lines

A standard phone jack is a four-conductor jack, which can support 1-2 phone lines. If you want to upgrade to a more complex phone jack, expect the cost of materials to be slightly higher.

4. Electrician labor cost in your area

The materials for installing a phone jack are relatively inexpensive ($5 to $15). The biggest variable is the hourly rate that an electrician in your area charges. Expect to pay for 1-2 hours of labor to install 1 phone jack.
