Do not think twice about hiring Rodney. He is fantastic! We hired his service to help with a technical issue we were having with a Vector robot. He meticulously went through everything. Diagnosed the problem after working ever so diligently. We ate so grateful for his help and experience. We will be hiring his services again in the near future; to help us with our home security. Thank you Rodney!

I can't express enough how much these people are useful for a consultation purpose. I am moving to a new home and had network concerns and they responded and helped me immediately to work out what would be the best solution. These people are great and I can't recommend them enough. If you are in the Pinellas County area and need help with any IT/Networking for your home or office these guys are great, friendly, professional and very responsive.

Thank you for the kind words! I hope the solution I provided you with saves you a lot of time/money and provides you with a high quality networking experience. The latency difference in a suitable environment should be negligible versus ethernet (both are copper based). Good luck with the move!

We are a small business that went through an internet provider change that made some things go awry with some hardware in our network. When the internet provider failed to support us with these glitches, they said to use our IT Professional to fix the issues...well we don't have one. We do now! Rodney had to troubleshoot some easy challenges and some very hidden problems. I'm no longer worried about IT problems that may arise in the future.

Thank you, Dawn! It was a pleasure and I'm very excited to work with your business in the future (though I hope it's smooth sailing for as long as possible). Next time you've got to tell me more about your past experiences with tech, it's interesting stuff.

Rodney quickly diagnosed the problem and explained it in terms that I could understand. He then helped me choose the proper product at Best Buy. His ability to solve a chronic problem that WOW tech support could not solve impressed me. I plan to use his expertise in the future. I would recommend his services to family and friends.

Thank you Roger! Please let me know if your ISP continues to give you issues. Always happy to help.
