Pole Licensing

Tilson helps telecom carriers, government agencies and other private parties navigate the niche world of attaching to utilities poles and accessing conduit. Tilson has helped clients attach to over 65,000 utility poles, and 400 miles of conduit in the past three years. Utility pole attachment can be hard, with most utility poles in the public way being owned by two or more electric and telcom utilities and sometimes up to a dozen third parties already licensing space on the pole, like CLECs, cable TV, and municipal fire alarm installations.  Tilson provides support in:

  1. Route ride outs and selection
  2. Regulatory strategy
  3. Attachment agreement negotiation
  4. Licence application
  5. Make-ready management, both for pole owners and third party attachors
