About us

Since 1988, Protel Communications has been supplying, installing and maintaining cost-effective communication solutions and networks for small, medium and large businesses, across a range of industries.

About Protel Communications

Based in Keynsham, between Bath and Bristol, we support our local business community here in the South West and some further afield.

If your traditional on premise or web-based telephone system needs upgrading, we’re more than happy to talk through your options.

Relocation, refurbishments and new build projects are another element of our business which includes:

  • De-commissioning/reinstallation of all telephone equipment
  • Liaising with line and service providers – with a dedicated account manager
  • Installation of structured network cabling for example: Cat 5e, Cat 6 and Fibre Optics
  • Provision of a Protel engineer on site before, during and after relocation to ensure continuity of service

You will find we are very easy to do business with. We aim to make things as straightforward as possible; there’s always someone to talk to if you or your client needs help or advice.

Our number one priority is to make sure you are completely happy with your business solution. Then, after that, we make sure we’re always on hand to offer any on-going support or maintenance you need, including changes to your system and future upgrades.

What’s more, all installations come complete with a comprehensive warranty. This means that all our customers receive the same fast, reliable service for ongoing maintenance and support.

Every engineer is fully trained, accredited and holds an enhanced security checked status.
