Whenever we've had any kind of phone work done inside, it's always been done by the phone company. I think it's a specialty thing.

I believe in new construction (building a house from the ground up)...the electrician does all the interior stuff and leaves the cable hanging for the phone company to install their box and hook up to.

The real answer depends. Some places it will be done by the local telephone company, some places it will be done by the general electrician, some places it will be done by a specialty (low voltage and communications) electrician, some places it might be done by a carpenter working for the general contractor and some places it could be done by some drunk hired from a day labor agency. It all depends upon the LOCAL code and licensing requirements AND the builder.

Generally speaking the local telephone company is the highest price contractor so they doing the work is rare.
