Pole Attachment/Joint Use Contract Best Practices

Wednesday, August 21, 2024 | 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. EDT

A pole attachment contract is something every pole owner and attacher must have to allow for the provision of electric, phone, cable, or internet services to their customers. This type of agreement must promote collaboration, mutual benefits, and service to mutual customers without sacrificing the safety and reliability of services provided. In many cases, pole attachment agreements are outdated, creating liability for all parties and causing lost revenue for pole owners and ineffective services for attachers. Join this webinar to learn more about the best practices.
