When we moved into our new offices a couple of years ago Eyebright took over the process of arranging all our utilities including phone system, broadband, water, electricity etc. As is the norm with utility companies we got messed about with incorrect billings and other issues but Eyebright jumped on it and rectified all the issues promptly. Ill never go direct again!!
