Online heavyweight joins DSA
Written by: Philip Mason | Published:

Amazon has become the newest charter member of the Dynamic Spectrum Alliance (DSA), alongside Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Nominet and Adaptrum.

The DSA describes itself as a “global, cross-industry alliance focused on increasing dynamic access to unused radio frequencies.”

Speaking of the company’s decision to come on board, Amazon’s VP of public policy Brian Huseman said: “Our products and services are smarter, faster and more convenient because we have access to unlicensed wireless spectrum.

“Access to spectrum is essential for the creation and growth of ground breaking, consumer-focused technologies and we look forward to working with the Dynamic Spectrum Alliance to ensure we maintain it.”

President of the DSA Kalpak Gude said: “As a membership, we are continually growing and looking for organisations who share our core goals and mission, and Amazon’s work in this area fits perfectly with our vision.

“We are confident that having Amazon join the Alliance will help us achieve our goals of bringing broadband connectivity to the unconnected and encouraging more efficient use of spectrum through unlicensed and shared spectrum policies.”

Amazon’s membership follows its recent publication of a report suggesting that greater digital adoption in rural areas could add more than £12 billion annually in gross value.
