ACTwireless believes that ALL American consumers should have equal access to affordable wireless communication in today’s rapidly-evolving marketplace.

Today, we benefit from wireless services like ride-sharing apps and video calling. But these groundbreaking innovations also have a major impact on the accessibility community.

Apps are helping break down barriers for the hard of hearing and deaf communities with innovative solutions like connecting to hearing aids to offer further assistance.

Ride-hailing apps make travel a more independent and safe experience for low-vision and blind individuals. Video calling makes it possible for deaf individuals to communicate with sign language. Other apps can offer real-time speed to text during conversations, or provide captioning services for hard-of-hearing individuals during events, like Broadway shows.

To encourage the developments of new accessibility services and products, we support a positive regulatory environment, which is crucial to ushering in next-generation wireless—5G.
