Those guys *LOVE* to staple along baseboards, around door frames and anywhere else they can. If it were me, I'd prefer they went through the wall.

When I first got a cable modem, Rogers had to get the cable from one end of my condo to the other. The first guy that showed up wanted to staple the cable to the baseboards, around doors etc., almost the entire length of my unit. I refused. Next a two man crew came and spent 3 hours fishing the cable from one end to the other and did a very nice job. They even patched the holes they made in the drywall. The cable is only visible where it crosses the ceiling of my laundry room, where it runs right next to an air duct.

At my sister's previous home, Cogeco stapled a cable right up the middle of the living room wall to get to an upstairs bedroon.

Both times, it was a contractor and no, it didn't cost me anything. Of course, this was about 10 - 11 years ago. I wonder what would happen today, if you told them do it right or don't do it at all?

That Cogeco job at my sister's was a disgrace.
