Testimonials

Thomas helped me with information technology while I ran successfully for re-election to the Vermont House of Representatives and later when I ran and won a seat in the Vermont State Senate. He is the best! Trustworthy, smart, able to keep information confidential and not afraid to tell me when there was a better way. He will work hard for you too.

Carolyn Branagan

Johnson & Finnigan needed assistance with upgrading our office computers to Windows 10. I knew that Thomas was starting up a new business and said we could trust his expertise. Thomas was professional and accommodating to our schedules. Our computers are now up-to-date and performance has improved. We trust his services and look forward to continuing efforts to maintain (& improve) our technology in 2020.

Michael Johnson

South Burlington, VT

14 years ago, when I was new to all things technology, Thomas was there to help. He patiently listened to the goals I had for growing our business and guided us to our first web presence. He also helped with our first company computer and wireless network. I still trust him today and appreciate his longstanding professional relationship. If you need someone to solve a problem and get a job done, call Rural Techs.

Joseph Kearney

West Rutland, VT

I needed help securing reliable internet for my home office in Fairfax, VT. Good broadband is not easy to find in my area. Thomas found some good options and then provided a diagram of the solution, making it much easier to understand. Since then, he has helped me with multiple projects, including file storage backup and computers upgrades. Thomas is one of the few IT professionals I've worked with that really knows how to communicate with customers. He can handle complex challenges and never talks over your head! Rural Techs is the way to go.

Patrick Dodge

Fairfax, VT

Thomas has been helping my small business for a few years now. He has helped me when I was frustrated with trying to do things on my own. Trust me, give him a call. It is not worth the struggle doing it yourself. Thomas was really great listening to exactly what I needed. I would highly recommend him!

Nicole Tatro

South Burlingon, VT

When my business laptop was slowing down and running out of space, I asked Thomas for help. He was able to upgrade the computer and migrate all my programs without any disruption to my business. He is knowledgeable, kind and speaks in a way that makes it easy to understand what I am getting for my investment. I recommend his services if you are in need of trusted tech help.
