Re: Local Loop Install.

Also bear in mind that after your lease expires, they might could
very well be SOL if the new tenant decides "I don't want telco
monstronsity in the space I'm paying for", and they'd have every
right to simply rip it out (and possibly keep it, depending on your
area's local landlord/tenant laws, as it would be considered
"abandoned by the former tenant" [you]).
I'm not sure if you want to remind them of that, but I think it'd be
good form for full disclosure, since they might get dozens of
customers dependent on that hardware and suddenly have nowhere to put
it if you ever decide to leave.

something if they want to use your space that you're paying for.
Myself I would ask for the discount on service and also try to get
the install waived or at least reduced.

I've got an interesting question / situation...
I've got a local loop provider that we're looking at using for
some fiber connectivity. The long story is that there’s no real
great place for them to place their gear in the entire building,
sort of paying rent to the landlord, placing gear in our suite, or
placing gear in an uncontrolled room , i.e. no cooling, no
controlled access. This “local-loop” provider is asking to place
this gear into our space… while this gear is to provide us with
fiber connectivity back to a carrier hotel; they’re also looking
to service other tenants in our building. It is unrealistic to ask
this provider for some sort of a kickback, or monthly discount on
service? They’re hitting us up for an install fee, maybe they
could waive that? Anyone have some thoughts on this? Am I being
unrealistic in thinking that, if they are going to profit by
having gear in our space, we should expect to see a small return
or favor? The only other option for them is to spend money and
lease a small room, or modify an existing smaller room in the
building to fit their needs.
