The Internet Innovation Alliance is a broad-based coalition of business and non-profit organizations that aims to ensure every American, regardless of race, income or geography, has access to the critical tool that is broadband Internet. The IIA seeks to promote public policies that support equal opportunity for universal broadband availability and adoption so that everyone, everywhere can seize the benefits of the Internet — from education to health care, employment to community building, civic engagement and beyond.
In our increasingly connected world, any family or business without high-speed internet access is at a distinct disadvantage. Extending broadband, particularly next-generation 5G wireless connectivity to every American would also deliver a significant boost to the U.S. economy. The internet has become a powerful engine, and the U.S. must maximize its potential in order to ensure equal digital opportunity for all Americans and to remain competitive in the global economy.
