About Us


Freedom Technologies advises clients in developing and implementing clear regulatory strategies and business plans to address opportunities in the telecommunications and IT sectors. We provide insight, advice, research, analysis, and public outreach to ensure that our clients can take full advantage of their investments in today’s dynamic high-tech marketplace and regulatory environment. We guide clients through rapidly evolving and shifting public policy debates and regulatory developments, nationally and internationally.


Founded in 1992, Freedom Technologies has been guided since its inception by Janice Obuchowski, former U.S. Assistant Secretary of Commerce and National Telecommunications and Information Administrator. From the beginning, FTI has been endowed with expertise at the highest-level of policy formulation and regulatory practice, particularly in the areas of spectrum management, market competition, auction policy, broadband trends, Internet policy and network infrastructure development. In addition, Freedom Technologies has always had both a national and global focus, advising clients not only on U.S. issues, but also international trends and developments in telecommunications and IT.


FTI is headquartered in the greater Washington, DC area, in Arlington, Va. In addition to its role as a national and international center for policy development, Washington, DC, is a growing locus of high-technology activity. The national capital area is home to more than 12,000 high-tech companies and more technology workers than any other region. As a result, Washington is at the junction of business, technology and government, where the decisions are made today that will drive the global economy tomorrow.
