    with Wifi working so well these days, running a Cat 5 cable seems pointless.  Sometimes having a 'spare' Romex line that isn't connected to anything now [on either end] comes in handy in the future -- the trick is finding somewhere to put the basement end that's accessible for future use.  And if you're going to do that, make the line 12/3 ... just in case.  [idea: you may end up wanting a dehumidifier down there ... while it doesn't absolutely need a separate circuit ... basements are well known for not having enough circuits.]  -- Grampa

    Maybe a receptacle in the middle of the ceiling in case you have something odd to plug in.  I have some in my basement ceiling and I use them from time to time.  I have bare walls and didn't want to run conduit all over the place for wall mounted receptacles.
