Statement from WIA President and CEO Jonathan Adelstein:
“The pandemic has demonstrated more clearly than ever that broadband is a key element of 21st century infrastructure. Reliable wireless connectivity is essential for everything from healthcare to education to curbside pick-up. WIA appreciates the House’s focus on broadband deployment and the inclusion of several important provisions to help bridge the digital divide in The Moving Forward Act. We look forward to working with Congress to ensure that all Americans have access to reliable wireless broadband and to building the well-trained workforce needed to construct and maintain our nation’s wireless infrastructure.”
The Wireless Infrastructure Association (WIA) represents the businesses that build, own, and operate the nation’s wireless infrastructure. On the federal, state, and local levels, WIA advocates for the widespread, responsible deployment of wireless infrastructure to enable mobile broadband access for communities everywhere.
