The Cable Guys Philosophy

  • Cable Guys strive to provide a high quality service for a reasonable price.
  • Cable Guys want to comply with the wishes of their customers wherever possible.
  • Cable Guys want their customers to be confident that the job will be done correctly.
  • Cable Guys want to be known for three things – honesty, reliability and quality.

In The Beginning…

Cable Guys was started in February 2004, the brainchild of Leo Walton and Lee Spicknell, both graduates from Nottingham University’s Electrical Engineering Department. The aim was to provide affordable network installations for student properties, homeowners and commercial properties.

Quickly spreading to cover Nottingham, Lincoln and Loughborough, this service proved popular and they quickly identified another potential niche in the market – aerial installation and satellite installation.

With an already impressive reputation for their quality and service these new services were quickly adopted by their existing customers and word about Cable Guys spread even further.

Cable Guys believe that the best way to prove their quality and service are through industry accreditation so they quickly contacted the Confederation of Aerial Industries and soon they were accredited members able to prominently display the CAI logo.

The Next Steps…

With CAI accreditation Cable Guys were able to move with confidence into the domestic aerial and satellite market but they also found themselves requiring electrical installation services.

With their background in electrical engineering it was a simple matter to add electrical installation to their repertoire of expanding services, allowing us to offer a comprehensive installation service from mid-2006.

Shortly after this Lee Spicknell started a course that was to enable Cable Guys to design, install and commission communal aerial and satellite systems, also known as IRS or Integrated Reception Systems, from early 2008.

Where They Are Today….

Fast forward to today and Cable Guys have gone from two guys working out of a spare room at Leo Walton’s house to having a workshop unit in a business centre with 7 employees.

Having fine-tuned their installations, and always trying to maintain quality, they were market leaders in offering an enhanced 5 year warranty as standard. After much negotiating and fine-tuning their warranty and terms and conditions have been approved by Trading Standards and they are approved by the Buy With Confidence scheme.

Constantly looking to innovate and offer the complete service they now offer a range of audio/video installations – from hanging a TV to installing a HDTV distribution system, all with the same impeccable Cable Guys quality and level of service.
