Telecommunications & Right of Way Management Service

Because cable and telecommunications expertise can be expensive, we pool together resources to make such a high-end service affordable for you. That allows us to provide you a wide variety of services including franchise fee reviews, franchise fee management, and expertise for any negotiations with cable and telecommunications companies. As your advocate, we’ll review your current situation to see if you might be losing money from unpaid franchise fees. You might also need expert assistance dealing with legal and regulatory issues related to cable and telecommunications companies. With over 25 years of expertise, we’ve got plenty of experience dealing with those companies on your behalf.
 

Why GMA?


With over 25 years of expertise dealing with cable and telecommunications companies on behalf of cities, we are experienced experts who can negotiate with those companies as your advocate. For your city, that means cable and telecommunications agreements structured by experts that benefit you. From our experience with cities, we routinely see:
  • Returns on investment far exceeding the low annual cost of our services.
  • Cities recouping past underpaid fees, often in the thousands of dollars.
  • Increased rent and right-of-way fees so that you are not undervaluing your city’s property and assets.
Since 2012, a total of over $4 million has been recovered through franchise fee audits for local governments participating in the Telecommunications & Right of Way Management service.
