Well what can say, from start to finish Start Communications have been absolutely brilliant! We moved to Start Communication after being let down by our previous provider, the level of service and support they have provided to ensure our business was set up how it should have been have gone well and truly beyond our expectations. I can not recommend them enough! Richard, Kerry, Beverley and the team have been fantastic in organising the switch over and keeping us up to date with the progress every step of the way. A massive thank you from all of us at The Vivid Group.

We love working with companies who share our core values of great service and a personal touch - that's exactly what we experienced in our dealings with Start Communications. They took an interest and listened to our individual needs, were prepared and efficient, looking to ensure we had a painless move from our old supplier and even advised us on historic issues with them. Really pleased to have started a working relationship with them.
