“The best services being built on the Internet today allow the user to forget that there is a massive network of networks between the user and the service provider,” said Drew Weaver, CTO, XLHost.
“Instead, the user is able to spend more time focusing on entertainment or productivity. Creating better and friction-less user experiences will require a higher level of cooperation and understanding from industry participants, public policy makers, and the general public. This is why XLHost is thrilled to be a part of the I2Coalition,” he added.
“i2Coalition welcomes XLHost to the team as we continue to educate policy makers about the nuts and bolts of the Internet,” said Mr. Christian Dawson, co-founder and Board Chair, i2Coalition .
