- Lose a ton of user productivity due to slow network speeds because of incorrect or cheap network cabling
- Have to figure out how to hook up new employees through the current insufficient voice and network cabling that was done, for phones and internet.
- Additional network cables often will not look as neat as the network cables initially planned and run during the project. Aesthetics in a new office is important.
