Great service, great peopleI would definitely recommend this company. Called the mobile Friday afternoon, the office called me back within minutes and booked an appointment for 08:15 the following Monday.
Communication from the office was great; they called me over the weekend to confirm I still needed the appointment.
The engineer [Richard] arrived on time and was very personable. He very quickly established the cause of my loss of signal, confirmed what was required, and the price. This particular job was done in about five minutes and my signal was as good as new! Richard also explained the reason behind the issue and the external contributing factors [increasing mobile 4G signal].
A great company priding themselves on a quality job with quality staff. Thanks, Jason
