“The Blackstar team were professional and punctual throughout. Excellent communication from their engineers, who knew exactly the timescales and issues we were facing. Our timescales were extremely tight, and they bent over backward to get our numbers ported before we moved into our new office. Would definitely recommend!” Jake Bloomfield, Stirling Dynamics
