J&K Communications in Alameda County: Expert Cabling At Fair, Affordable Prices

J&K Communications is known for quality work done at affordable and fair pricing, so much so that if someone else's bid is lower, it's a cause for concern. Sometimes it's because that other company hasn't taken into account the need for the different types of cables required by code and to pass inspection,  meaning you'll have to pull it all out and do it over again. Or they've intentionally bid too low in order to get your business and plan to bump it up once the job is underway.  Jennifer Doob shares, "We have the experience necessary to bid a job accurately, something our clients have especially noticed and appreciated."

With the huge cabling companies, clients are merely one of thousands and often get lost in the shuffle and shortchanged by techs who have been ordered to get in and get out with the minimum amount of work possible, in order to maximize their profits. Unlike those companies, clients of J&K Communications get qualified techs but with the personalized service and greater quality control provided by a more modest sized firm. Jennifer says, "We use only high qualified techs and Kevin oversees all the jobs. And clients are always able to reach us and get a quick response. We know who each one is."

Customer we called cited this combination of quality workmanship, efficiency and customer service. Like one named Ali who told us, "We've worked on a number of projects with Kevin Phillips. He's done low voltage wiring for several of our projects over five years now and in every case he and his team have exceeded our expectations. They're top notch at what they do. They do a very thoughtful and clean approach to their low voltage cabling.   I can heartily recommend Kevin from J&K."

Another customer Brian owns an IT consulting firm, and hires Kevin Phillips and J&K Communications to take care of his clients. He reported to us, "Regarding Kevin Phillips at J&K Communications, I have an IT consulting company and we've been around for 28 years. We've used Kevin to do cabling at our clients for well over 10 years and are very, very satisfied with the work that he has provided to our clients. I do recommend him very strongly."

While J&K Communications and Kevin Phillips do all manner of voice and data cabling, they're an especially good choice for fiber optic cabling. Kevin says, "In addition to doing fiber, we have a Fluke fiber microtester to ensure the result of the fiber cabling. Not every company has that because the tester is costly, but it's an investment we've made to better serve our clients. We also do the connectors to the fiber which many others don't do, and have to subcontract out to someone else. And we also do wireless access points, and VoIP."

Clients also know Kevin Phillips for having a particular expertise in paging systems. Jennifer Doob tells us, "Kevin is an expert in paging. He's been doing it a long time and can figure out problems that leave lots of other companies stumped. Like when you have a series of speakers, say like thirty-five in a warehouse or office and it's hard to find where the problem originates, Kevin has the right tools, experience, and intuition to know where to start looking, where others try all day and can't do it."

Jennifer Doob and Kevin Phillips live in Alameda CA, have been married for 13 years and have a seven year old son.  Kevin has a love of motorcycles and both of them enjoy photography.  Friends cite Kevin's integrity, and clients note how he cares a lot about doing cabling that is both efficient and clean looking.

So it's previous clients who told us that J&K Communications in Alameda CA and Kevin Phillips have proven to be the choice for expert cabling done to a higher degree of quality and neatness, with honest and affordable pricing. One previous client Mike who runs his own telecom company, might have summed it up best when he said, "We utilize J&K Communications for almost all of our data cabling infrastructure projects from a few cables to hundreds. J&K Communications is able to understand the project from inception to completion and find solutions in a friendly, positive and professional manner. Kevin is always very helpful, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. J&K Communications is also an affordable company providing quality customer service. I will definitely continue to use them for future projects."
