Most people are just concerned about keeping up with the Jones's.
There's no way data comm wiring is accounting for the large price increase/differential we're talking about here. I just went back to my options/pricing sheet for my vacation home built as new construction from a track builder. House was built in 2012. An additional electrical outlet was $75. Datacom drops were $140. Hardly a cost that would blow up a price of a home. Even at the inflated $140 price. I opted not to do much more than what was included in the price of the home as I knew I could run the cabling and terminate them for much cheaper.
