10/04/2013 - El Dorado Satellite's five star reputation is well earned. Alan Thompson's honesty and integrity stand out in the sea of satellite competitors. I found Alan through Yelp. I called El Dorado Satellite's phone number in hopes of finding someone to install internet satellite for my family. I chose not to leave a message on their business answering machine and after I hung up; not even 5 minutes after, Alan was calling me back. After a short discussion, he pointed me in the direction of Dishnet and since I have Dish Network; he made me aware that I would get a better rate than going with another competitor. He answered all my questions and even advised me on a way to lower my monthly bill. Alan knows this business very well and won't steer you down the wrong path when it comes to choosing the best service for your needs. - Mae L., Somerset, CA
9/15/2013 - I met Alan at the county fair in Placerville, where he had his stand. At the time we had dial up, and were considering getting something faster. Our choices were either http://Hughes.net or Verizon.
I did not order the service at the fair, since I wanted to do a research on leaking of Emf. After my research I found out that there is about 2-10% leakage and the best way to avoid it, is to mount the dish away from the house. Verizon's transmitter is too strong and not as directional, therefor polluting your home with excess frequencies. Low emf pollution was my goal and that was my request when I ordered the service with Eldorado Satellite.
Alan and his crew came and install the dish about 50 feet away from the house on a granite rock, we were online in no time. I was not eligible to lease the equipment, so I had to buy it, but Alan gave me several different discount coupons that helped reduced the cost way down (about $200 in discounts), that was nice.
The internet is fast, like really fast, i measured on "test my speed" and it comes up to 10 Mbps. Awesome
Update after 3 months: the service came down to almost zero, and i contacted http://Hughes.net technical service - not very helpful, but Alan kicked in and optimized some stuff on their side and it works fast again.
I would definitely recommend Alan and his crew to anyone getting satellite services. You really want someone professional and prompt, especially when it comes to problems. They are good, as good as it gets! I'm really glad i didn't just order the service online at http://Hughes.net. - Dejan O., Placerville, CA
7/29/2013 - I had the best experience working with Alan Thompson and his crew. Alan went out of the way helping me set up my new e-mail address and I highly recommend his service. - Agnes D. El Dorado, CA
7/5/2013 - Excellent, professional service. The installers were on time, very professional and helpful. Alan provides service beyond that of other satellite providers I've used in the past and invited me to contact him with any questions. He is up to date with what is happening with my local service; if he doesn't know the answer, he finds out and calls or emails me back. I highly recommend this professional company. - Angela H., Georgetown, CA
5/20/2013 - Our business is located in a VERY remote location and the service works great. Alan and his staff are PROS! - Kathy T, Auburn, CA
3/7/2013 - Great service provider. Fast response time. Very professional and polite installers. - Carmen B, Placerville, CA
2/20/2013 - Alan and his staff are very attentive and extremely helpful. We had Hughesnet once before, and were less than satisfied with the fellow who did that installation. Alan's installation was far superior. Although Hughes isn't perfect we came back to them after trying a different wireless service, with less than adequate results. This is the first Yelp review I have ever written and I highly recommend this company. - Carole M., Somerset, CA
2/6/2013 - Alan and his installation team are great. Good communication, professional installation and great customer service. I recommend these guys. - Dale E., Houston, TX
2/2/2013 - Great service and they are right on top of it if there are any problems. I am recommending them whole heartily. First class act. If you need high-speed satellite service, go with El Dorado Satellite! I am a satisfied customer. - Rod S., Placerville, CA
