United States-centric?[edit]

This article title is U.S.-centric. It should be renamed somthing like "United States National Telecommunications and Information Administration" or "National Telecommunications and Information Administration (United States). Kingturtle 22:11, 21 Sep 2003 (UTC)

Is there another National Telecommunications and Information Administration? If not, then the article is correctly titled. Merenta 17:10, 4 Nov 2004 (UTC)
I agree with Merenta--DThomsen8 (talk) 01:00, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Office of Telecommunications Policy[edit]

The NTIA used to be the office of telecommunications policy. New article? History subsection? --Rabid Lemur 07:46, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

NTIA resulted from a combination of the Office of Telecommunications (U.S. Department of Commerce) and the Office of Telecommunications Policy (U.S. Executive Office of the President). FLAHAM (talk) 15:08, 4 March 2010 (UTC)


Can we get some history on this administration, such as when was it founded, the reasons for it taking over some responsibilities from the FCC, et cetera?

According to the official website, Lawrence E. Strickling is in charge:
