The key objective of the WiMAX Spectrum Owners Alliance (WiSOA) is to accelerate the acceptance and deployment of interoperable WiMAX networks through a coordinated global effort.

WiSOA is the first global organisation composed exclusively of owners of WiMAX spectrum. WiSOA is focussed on the regulation, commercialisation, and deployment of WiMAX in the 2300 ~ 2400 Mhz, 2500 ~ 2690 Mhz and the 3400 ~ 3600 Mhz frequency bands.

WiSOA is dedicated to educating and informing its members, industry representatives and government regulators of the importance of WiMAX spectrum, its use, and the potential for WiMAX to revolutionise broadband and data access in much the same way as the GSM standard transformed voice communication and its associated technologies.

WiSOA strictly represents the needs of those companies and organizations that own and operate WiMAX spectrum. Its particular focus is on WiMAX networks, most especially on resolving those issues related to the definition and implementation of interoperable network infrastructure and services.

WiSOA is intended to assist members who have committed to deploy WiMAX and who are at the forefront of the development of this new branch of the telecommunications industry. WiSOA acknowledges that the value of the spectrum is essential to ensuring the unrestricted flow of capital to WiMAX operators. Ensuring this can be achieved is an essential objective for WiSOA.
