Life happens wirelessly

Odds are you’re reading this on your cellphone. Our cellphones connect us to our favorite apps, work, emergency services, our closest friends, and family members. That’s why wireless access is more important than ever. From spectrum, broadband infrastructure, and a national privacy law to lowering wireless fees and closing the digital divide, ACTwireless helps Americans tell lawmakers why sensible wireless policies are so important.

What part of your life is wireless? Your work? Your hobbies? Your family? Your health services?

The best way to show lawmakers why wireless matters is to share your story. Tell your elected officials why you care about keeping connected to work, family, and more on your wireless devices. See what Americans across the country have to say about wireless.
