Axios: All 50 States Will Get Wireless Network For First Responders

Kim Hart – Axios:

All 50 states — and Washington D.C., the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico — have opted to join the first nationwide mobile broadband network specifically dedicated to first-responders, known as FirstNet. It will be built out next year.

Seems like a big deal. Emergency responders get their own network, and AT&T gets additional bandwidth when the network they’re contracted to build isn’t in use. Win-win.
