"We bring expertise developed over 30 years to deliver efficient and effective client service."

- Cliff Abbott, Principal

Gain momentum as you weave through the regulatory maze of telecommunications.


For today’s telecom providers, the financial and regulatory issues ahead look complex and costly.

  • Continued dependence on federal and state regulatory decisions
  • Major capital spending (and resulting debt) for new facilities and equipment
  • The rising risk (and cost) of investing in technologies and services that grow obsolete faster
  • Minimal growth or decline in regulated revenue, reflective of slow economic growth and a host of new competitors and new services
