NTD Oshkosh Review

What is Northern Telephone and Data (NTD) Corporation?

NTD is a company founded in 1993 that offers a few residential services including phone, internet, website hosting, and home security. They also offer these services and a few others for businesses, such as IT networking and support and e-mail hosting. Located in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, they are a locally owned and operated company that provides service to Winnebago County and the surrounding areas.

For home security systems they offer burglar and fire alarms with professional installation of your cameras and DVR, remote access for live video surveillance and control systems, intercom systems, a medical alert system, and 24/7 monitoring. For businesses, NTD offers the same options as residential minus the medical alert system. Their professional monitoring is done over IP, cellular, or landline.

How do the customers feel?

Northern Telephone and Data corporation is a small company in terms of the region it supplies. This means that it can be a bit difficult to find customer reviews for their services. On Yelp and in the reviews on their Facebook page, all of the reviews are centered around their internet and phone services. Most of the reviews are happy with the service they are being provided as well as NTD’s customer service. There are a few that are unhappy stating that services are a bit adequate the further out of town you are, even if it is just ten minutes. With this in mind, there is no real way to know how NTD’s security systems hold up or how reliable their monitoring is in the opinions of their customers.

The Downside

NTD is only an option if you live around Oshkosh, so it is not much of an option for most people, and if you move you can say goodbye to your system. On top of that, you cannot find any information on their actual equipment on their website, no list of what products they have, no descriptions, nothing. So, all you can do is fill out a request pricing form and wait for them to get back to you. You have no choice but to go in blind instead of having some idea of what you do and do not want. However, NTD does offer a wide variety of services outside of home security, so if you live in the area and plan to be there for a while, it will not hurt to see what they can offer.
