Welcome to Communications Support Group

Communications Support Group, Inc. is a California-based telecommunications solution provider enabling clients of all sizes to fully benefit from their telecommunications investment.

We focus on telecom audit services, cost recovery, and managing telecommunications services to reduce overall telecom costs and improve efficiencies. CSG's President and Associates frequently present information at trade industry meetings on the merits of enlisting CSG in managing enterprise telecom expenses and devices.  See CSG On The Go in the side bar for link.  In 2014, CSG and its associate Widepoint, completed telecom expense management contracts with Hoag Presbyterian Hospital and Greenwood & Hall and also provided gross revenue audit support for the cities of Inglewood and Redondo Beach.

CSG has a long history of performing professional revenue procedures reviews involving the nation's largest video services and telecommunications providers (AT&T, Verizon, Comcast, Charter Communications, and Time Warner Cable).  Most of these were performed for California municipalities.  We are currently soliciting additional utility tax projects involving municipalities with video user or communications user taxes.  Legacy municipal clients also enjoy access to CSG's franchise fee and PEG fee revenue review services targeting AT&T, Verizon, Comcast, and Charter. CSG has performed procedure reviews on behalf of many southern CA and northern CA public agencies, resulting in the recovery of millions of dollars of unpaid taxes and fees.  In addition, we provide consulting, procurement and expense management services for Data, Hosting and Voice Solutions; and we can assist in determining eligibility for e-rate and Universal Service/Connect America Funds.  We also consult clients in mobile device management, telepresence and live video streaming applications for their enterprises.
