Washington DC – The Internet Infrastructure Coalition has coordinated and delivered a letter to Congressional leadership, signed by eighteen of the world’s leading Internet companies, and nine of the most important organizations showcasing the Internet community’s support for the IANA transition. The letter signatories include i2Coalition’s own members Afilias, Amazon, cPanel, Donuts, Dropsuite, Endurance, Google, Handy Networks, OnApp, SingleHop and Tucows.

On October 1st, 2016 the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) plans to end its stewardship of the Internet’s addressing system and shift authority to the global Internet community via the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This shift of authority is vital to the economic and national security of the United States of America. The i2Coalition has worked with members of Congress and the global Internet community to ensure the IANA transition is not only efficient, but also in the best interest of the freedom of the American people and the global community; stressing the protection of human rights and the United States Freedom of Speech. The i2Coalition, its members and, partners firmly believe that any delay of this transition will be a major setback for the Internet ecosystem. This transition plan will provide accountability, transparency and security.
