The Wireless Innovation Alliance (WIA) is a broad-based group of innovators, providers, consumer groups, think tanks and education organizations that believe that more efficient use and expanded access to the nation’s spectrum resources are fundamental to the future of U.S. economic policy and global competitiveness, and that we face potential spectrum scarcities in both licensed and unlicensed bands that must be addressed in order for innovation and investment to move forward.

Spectrum, and specifically, the most efficient and expansive use of this most valuable natural resource, is fundamental to the future of U.S. economic growth, and global competitiveness. United States spectrum policy must also be efficient and flexible as well, so that we can encourage and accommodate new and innovative ways to meet the growing demand for wireless services and applications, and the growing inability - in both licensed and unlicensed bands - to meet that demand.
