What People Are Saying

“I decided to work with Tero because they are experienced individuals that get the job done right and in a timely manner. What stands out most to me is the knowledge level of the technicians doing the work. They are not laborers pulling cable. They are quality technicians that know how to do their job and they do it well. I expect top quality work and I get it with Tero. I have learned that I no longer have to keep up with cabling standards and best practices. I can rely on Tero technicians to do that for me. I have always appreciated the way Tero has gone above and beyond to make sure we were happy customers. On more than one occasion, I have had a job that required emergency attention and Tero was willing and able to provide an immediate solution. Tero has been an asset that I know I can count on to do a job. When I need a cabling solution, Tero is the only call I need to make. Over the past several years, I have used Tero on quite a few projects. While working with them I have come to know the technicians pretty well. I have noticed that most of the same technicians are still working for the company. I think that says a lot about Tero as a company. In an industry with a high turnover rate, their employees remain loyal to the company and their job. That is hard to come by these days.”
