Your house only have one wall socket for antenna? No wall socket built-in for ASTRO wiring?
Got. And I guess Astro cable is fried too b'cos the dish is cooked. Since i had terminated Astro 2 months ago, so can't verify.

Lighning does strike twice and may be more to come ! Sad but its true. No need to spend 20k on the lightning rod just get yourself something like the belkin or cal-lab lightning protectors. Not really expensive but effective cos they give lifetime warranty.
www.cal-lab.com or www.belkin.com.
Actually saw someone selling in lyn but dunno which thread.
I'm aware of those, but my current concern is on the cable protection, not equipment.

I honestly don't know how a sum of RM20k can be estimated or justified. I think its always best to get a quote from various electrical contractors..not from hearsay. The amount of materials required varies according to the build of the house...just as in the case of whatever else M & E installation.
Nope, it's not the actual price nor a quote from electrician. It's just an estimated told by my brother in law. He's doing electrical cable pulling for a living.

It's the conductor cable that's expensive. But RM20K is way to much! RM2K sounds more reasonable.
Copper is damn expensive now a days. So pulling something from a first floor roof top down to the ground definitely cost more than RM2k.
