Telecoms Services

8point8 Support offer end-to-end network installation services for the leading telecoms companies and vendors. We offer a first-class service operating nationally with our strategically placed teams. Our rigging teams are market leaders providing services to the mobile sector, delivering 2G, 3G, 4G and WiFi systems to our client’s specifications.

Rigging services have been the backbone of our company since incorporation. We believe the quality of installations and service delivery success rates set us apart from our competitors. These can be attributed to the strength of the technical management who work closely with field operations to achieve optimum results.
