ACCG - GMA Regional Workshops on Small Cells and Rural Broadband
ACCG and GMA are co-hosting a regional workshop series, Managing Rights of Way in the Wireless Age, across the state from Sept. 18 - Oct. 25.
The purpose of these workshops is to inform local officials about telecommunications issues in Georgia, including the technology and equipment needed to provide wireless and fiber broadband service to Georgia's urban and metro areas, current telecom law, franchise and right-of-way agreements, and federal and state legislation.
Attendees will also learn about the State of Georgia's 'Achieving Connectivity Everywhere' (ACE) Act, including the potential roles of local governments to engage in the Georgia Broadband Deployment Initiative. There is no cost to attend these workshops and registration is available on the GMA website: https://www.gmanet.com/Training-Events/Calendar-Of-Events.aspx.
**In short, if you are interested in learning more about the rural broadband legislation which passed last session (SB 402), or the issues surrounding the deployment of small cells poles, antennas and equipment in local government right-of-way, these workshops should be of interest to you.
Please contact ACCG Deputy Legislative Director Todd Edwards at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
