do phone/ethernet lines need to be in conduit in chicago
 
I am a resident of Chicago, not a suburb, and I know in Chicago all electrical needs to be in conduit, but does this also apply to things like phone, internet, or cable runs which are low power?

Probably Not
 
I have never seen them that way if they do have to be that way. They are low voltage. Why are you asking? Are you running new lines?

Yes, I am running a few lines from my office with the router, etc, out to my living room for some non-wireless equipment. And I know in chicago all electrical needs to be in conduit, I was just wondering if that applied to phone/Ethernet too.
