Series Description

It has been a little over a year since the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) adopted a sweeping new order that—for the first time—applied federal rules and regulations governing access by wireless telecommunications carriers to attachments on public power utility poles. This decision comes in the wake of a concerted effort on the part of the FCC, Congress, and many states to accelerate the widespread deployment of new small cell wireless broadband facilities. 

As a result, public power utilities across the nation are facing increasingly complex wireless pole attachment issues as they respond to (and manage) requests for attachments of small cell facilities. These attachments are creating significant new challenges (and potential opportunities) for public power utilities. 

Participate in this three-part webinar series to learn about the latest legal and regulatory developments, as well as the most significant issues facing public power utilities at the federal, state, and local levels with respect to these attachments—including an in-depth review of 5G wireless technologies (to separate fact from hype). The series will explore how public power utilities of all sizes are successfully negotiating agreements and managing wireless attachments and, in some case, seizing new business opportunities presented by these facilities.

This series includes the following webinars, each held from 2 – 3:30 p.m. Eastern. Sign up for webinars individually or register for the series at a discounted rate. You’ll also get access to recordings and slides for future reference.

Recommended for:

Managers, engineers, lawyers, and other representatives of public power utilities that own or control poles, ducts, conduits, towers, buildings, or other facilities that support wireline or wireless communications attachments.
