Wow! Talk about great customer service and delivery. Charlie was incredibly responsive from the very first call to try to get my home wired for ethernet under an impossible schedule. Charlie took extra effort to understand my needs and walk me through the entire process to plan out the network. I couldn't be happier with the fast turnaround of the work or the results. I'll be sure to call Charlie ...

Out of several companies I contacted, this was the only one that got back to my inquiry. Charlie, the owner, was very thorough answering my questions. The day of service, the team was punctual, professional, neat, and they worked non-stop. Although the job took longer than estimated due to structural challenges, the final result looks very nice.

I would highly recommend this company. They were prompt in getting back to me. And even with them having a complete booked schedule, they still sent a service person out within 1 day. My problem was solved and the fee was reasonable.

Everything went smooth and by the numbers. I spoke with Charlie over the phone and we went over my antenna project. Prior to him sending us folks out, he recommended that I obtain an antenna and perform a quick test to see what kind of reception I could expect. Following his step by step instructions, I performed the test and everything looks great. Subsequently, we schedule an appointment and two...

I had 11 ethernet lines run to various locations at my house. Charlie's team did an excellent job. This was a fairly big job that took the two techs two days to complete. The techs provided their recommendations on how to run the wires with very minimal damage to dry wall. I plan on using them again in a couple years when I decide to have surround sound speaker cables professionally installed in t...
