I'm looking for an attorney in the Philadelphia area who specializes
in land easements. We have a telecom company looking to put some
antenna's, and I guess transmitters on our property and want someone
to review the agreements. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Michael, you're a very wise man.

these suggestions to get you started:

There is a good article called "Cut your telecom bills" in the May,
2011 issue of Consumer Reports magazine.
There are several parts of it that caught my eye right away: a section
titled "Some fiber really isn't", covering some of the physical-layer
issues we've been discussing here, and a section on the "Ooma" VoIP
service, plus a section on "The benefits of bundling and bargaining".
I'm curious what the Digest's readers think about the article.
