About

Founded in 2012 by a diverse group of Internet infrastructure companies, the Internet Infrastructure Coalition supports and represents those who build the nuts and bolts of the Internet. We treat the work of the Internet infrastructure industry like the noble profession that it is.

Our coalition launched at a significant time in our industry's history. The genesis of the organization began in 2011, when many of the i2Coalition founding and charter members joined forces during the successful effort to prevent SOPA and PIPA from becoming United States law. After mobilizing to ensure the Internet's free flow of information and commerce, we realized the on-going need for an industry voice.

The i2Coalition is now the leading voice for hosting companies, data centers, registrars and registries, software services providers, and related tech firms on both the domestic and international stages. We have made great strides on initiatives that affect our industry and the internet as a whole — issues like open access, mass surveillance, cybersecurity, patent reform, customer privacy, the IANA transition and Internet governance. These issues and our organization have never been more relevant or important for protecting our industry, and we do so with the strength of our membership. According to Gartner, the Internet infrastructure industry will generate \$131 billion in annual revenue and is growing at a rate of nearly 20% per year.

The economy is dependant on the continued growth of the Internet infrastructure industry; it is vital for creating an environment of innovation globally, and domestically.
