20th Annual Convention Set for September 23-26 in Las Vegas

 Washington, D.C., September 10, 2012 – The Competitive Carriers Association (CCA) announced its new name today, in line with its evolution into the voice for all players in the competitive carrier ecosystem.  Formerly known as the Rural Cellular Association, or RCA – The Competitive Carriers Association, CCA has become the home for all competitive carriers who share a common goal – the ability to compete with the largest, national carriers to provide the best service to their customer. 

 Announced in advance of CCA’s 20th Annual Convention, which takes place September 23-26 at the Wynn Las Vegas, the name change also reflects the evolution of the wireless industry. 

 CCA will continue to advocate on issues of importance to carriers throughout North America, and will continue to operate as a “one carrier, one vote” organization.  The organization’s new brand will serve as a platform for launching advocacy campaigns that enhance the competitive wireless marketplace across North America. With more carrier and associate members, CCA will have a greater impact on policymakers, speaking on behalf of businesses nationwide – not just in rural areas. 

“Over the past several years, the wireless industry has seen increased consolidation and the emergence of a market duopoly.  In light of the duopoly and the threat of further industry consolidation, our members – both large and small – all share a common goal,” said Steven K. Berry, president and CEO of CCA. “CCA will continue to work with policymakers to ensure competitive policies are adopted, which will benefit consumers, the economy and job growth.  The organization will continue to be a home for competitive carriers through our advocacy efforts, trade shows, and industry ecosystem development programs.” 

“The wireless industry cannot best serve the people of our nation with a duopoly in control of many of the critical industry inputs,” said Hu Meena, president and CEO, C Spire Wireless.  “We are committed to returning to a fully competitive environment and to keeping it that way. Our association’s new name reflects this commitment.”

Note to editors: Press registration is open for CCA’s 2012 Annual Convention, Sept 23-26 in Las Vegas.  Email cdelgreco@msipr.com or lbram@msipr.com to register.
