In 1999 several visionary leaders came together to form a global non-profit organization with the goal of driving adoption of high-speed wireless local area networking. We are that organization.

Today, in every continent, one in ten people around the world use Wi-Fi at home, at work, in countless ways. Wi-Fi adoption continues to grow, and common goals still bind together more than 400 Wi-Fi Alliance member companies from dozens of countries. The original goal of the visionary leaders that formed the Wi-Fi Alliance in 1999 has been realized, and yet the Wi-Fi Alliance is not done. The innovation and thought leadership of the Wi-Fi Alliance continues to drive new Wi-Fi applications and products, and it continues to enrich our lives.
