USA Telecom Insurance, a full-service program administrator, is located in Gainesville, GA and specializes in nationwide insurance coverage for the telecom industry, exceeding industry insurance requirements by carriers and contractors. The USATIS insurance program is the only “all lines” property and casualty insurance program in the United States with a low minimum premium and very competitive rates.
Bruce Eades, CEO of USA Telecom Insurance, has 34 years of experience in the insurance industry and has spent the last 24 years working with the telecom industry; over the years, he has become a subject matter expert. He has worked diligently advocating to find options for insuring telecom companies due to concerns with risk exposure. Because of this work, today, USATIS can offer nationwide coverage for telecom contractors.
Primarily, USATIS works with companies that build, maintain, and service tower sites, DAS, fiber and small cell markets. Their programs include property, commercial automobile, general liability, workers compensation, inland marine, pollution, umbrella, and drone coverage. Their A+ admitted insurance program meets the contractual demands needed by telecom contractors, plus their program has no minimum premium requirements.
So, what makes USATIS different from other insurance offerings? Their uniqueness lies in that both the product and consultation is designed specifically with the telecom contractor in mind. Their policy language meets most all contractual language demands for companies such as Crown Castle, American Tower, AT&T, Ericsson and many more. And their contract review is thorough and first class. USATIS has the infrastructure to properly service clients nationwide and they also offer ancillary services like safety training, that can be accessed via an online Learning Management System (LMS). USATIS understands the specifics and specializations of tower erection, line and antenna, DAS, and small cell operations.
According to Eades, his biggest concern isn’t insuring the telecom industry, it’s with maintaining and growing the workforce. “There’s so much work to be done and there aren’t enough companies or employees to get everything completed. I’m so concerned about this aspect of the industry that USATIS is doing something about it. We’re proud to be the first ever National Marketing Partner for Apprenticeship Outreach for the Telecommunication Industry Registered Apprenticeship Program (TIRAP), encouraging mass recruitment and training within the telecom industry,” he said.
Beyond keeping up with the infrastructure demands of the future, Eades wants companies in the telecom industry to know that if “they face coverage or safety challenges, or just want the help of a trusted advisor who understands their business – there is a solution and USATIS is here to help.”
