The team at Extel was extremely professional and provided quality service at a reasonable price. They were able to schedule the job with relatively short, with fantastic attention to detail. They arrived on time and tested everything before leaving to ensure the job was done. Excellent work, would definitely use them again. Highly recommended.

The advertisement came through as $80/hr. Tech was here under an hour And the bill was $199.41. Did I ask for explanation of the charge? No. I stuck between a rock and a hard place and didn't want to blow a gasket. Technician, Carlos was awesome- thorough, timely and polite.

Extel Communications, Inc.'s reply
Hi Mickey: I'm so sorry if there was a misunderstanding. The $80.00 per man hour rate that is noted on Thumbtack, at their urging, is an average between our cable installers and telephone technicians, with the latter being charged at a higher rate. That is why we always complete a no charge survey and provide a quote before we proceed with the job, as we provided for your project. We also have to add in travel time to all of our quotes. Customers can always decline the quoted price and there is absolutely no charge for our services at that point. The total of $199.41 also included sales tax. We wish we had known that you had an issue with our agreed upon quote before we completed the project. Again, so sorry for the misunderstanding and thanks again for your business. Rich
