WASHINGTON, DC-Efforts are underway to help multi-tenanted office buildings receive telecommunications service faster. Real Access Alliance, an association formed to ensure free market competition among telecommunications companies, recently released a draft model license agreement covering terms and conditions for access by telecommunications providers to multi-tenanted office buildings. The alliance is seeking input on the draft from a wide range of companies and industry associations, especially those serving the telecommunications and real estate markets.

The 48-page draft model license agreement, which is posted at http://www.realaccess.org, grew out of a pledge to the Federal Communications Commission by the Alliance and 12 of the largest real estate companies to take specific, voluntary steps to speed up tenant access to telecom providers of their choice.

“Our number one objective in drafting this model agreement is to expedite building access and use transactions between telecom providers and commercial property owners so that office tenants get faster and broader choices of telecom services,” says Alliance spokesman Roger Platt. “We believe this draft distills the best of hundreds of forms and access agreements that are already being used successfully in the marketplace.”

Written comments on the draft agreement should be submitted by Jan. 15 to the Real Access Alliance, c/o Nelson F. Migdal, Holland & Knight LLP, 2009 Pennsylvania Ave., NW, Washington, DC 20006. They may also be sent by email to [email protected].
