The team

At Elite Telecom, customer service comes first.  It doesn't matter how much technical know-how a person has, if they can’t communicate effectively with a customer and help to resolve their telecoms problem, they’re not the right fit for us.

We’ve built a fantastic team of experienced engineers and customer service specialists. They share the same goal; to ensure that our customers get telecoms solutions that work for them.
