Wireless Innovation Alliance


This alliance of more than 20 organizations faced enormous political opposition from television broadcasters, professional sports leagues, and the performance industry — from Nashville to Broadway — who all claimed that this innovation would destroy TV and turn Broadway dark.


On November 4, 2008, after more than four years of deliberation by the FCC, the Wireless Innovation Alliance’s efforts convinced the Commission to give America’s innovators access to the white space.


To end a lengthy and difficult battle with Washington’s most powerful lobbying groups at the FCC over the future use of the public broadcast spectrum, Qorvis built and led a broad-based coalition of tech industry leaders and public interest groups to educate Congress and the Commission on the vast potential of white space technology.
