WestHost and i2Coalition

Since 1998 we’ve worked to build a strong company and uphold the growth of the Internet. As a founding member we’re proud to announce the formation of the Internet Infrastructure Coalition (i2Coalition); a group committed to drive the “nuts and bolts” of the Internet. The i2Coalition consists of more than 40 industry leaders from various infrastructure providers and technology companies.

The i2Coalition began as a necessary idea 2011 when the founding members joined during successful campaigns to educate public and elected individuals about the threats from the Stop Online Privacy Act (SOPA) and the Protect IP Act (PIPA). The i2Coalition’s mission and goals are to be a voice and advocate for public policies essential for the growth and free-flow of ideas on the Internet.

As part of the launch, i2Coalition published a video with co-founder and board chair, Chris Dawson, outlining the priorities and mission of the organization. Visit www.i2Coalition.com to view the video.

Along with our fellow i2Coalition colleagues, we support the needs of the Internet infrastructure industry to develop market-based standards to drive innovation, which is crucial for continued growth. We intend to be a unified voice for public policy advocacy and education for the industry.

Working as united group brings strength and i2Coalition is always working to build on the vision to serve the Internet infrastructure industry through new members. Please consider becoming part of the i2Coalition by visiting the membership area to learn more.
