Here's some genuine recent feedback from our customers...

  • We recently completed a project to replace 64 wireless access points for Colchester Academy, six of which were high level, externally mounted points, which required the use of a cherry picker. Following the installation, carried out by our team in three days, Ollie Blake, IT Manager, said, “Couldn’t be happier with the install; it was the most stress free project I think we have ever done!”.

  • “Jon and his team wired up my old Victorian property running Cat6 ethernet to each room and to a set of 6 CCTV cameras, as well as running shielded cables to my outbuildings (a games room and an office). It was very important to me that the age and condition of the property be taken into consideration – Jon and his team completely respected this, making very tidy cable runs and cleaning up thoroughly. Performance (in particular latency) are critical to my work, Jon’s team took this into account by using high quality cable, having as few joins as possible and keeping the cable runs short. The guys we’re far more interested in doing a good job than just getting it done quick. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Octopus Cabling and will certainly use them again.”

  • “ The re-launch of the Visitor Centre at Sandringham required a complete new fibre network to connect up both the new ANPR car parking system and EPOS to a dedicated network cupboard with dedicated broadband and 4G backup. The project was complex and required a contractor who was sympathetic to the needs of the operating business as well as able to work alongside a number of other trades. Jonathan and the team from Octopus were first rate, they provided a gigabit network using quality components and handed this over fully tested. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jonathan and the team at Octopus to any similar such projects”
