No connection is more important than one that can save a life.
That’s why we have a long-standing commitment to supporting public safety and their communications needs. We are honored to continue that commitment by partnering with FirstNet to build and manage America’s first high-speed wireless broadband network dedicated to our nation’s first responders. This is a much needed investment in America’s communications infrastructure to support public safety nationwide.
Why? Because today, police, firefighters and emergency medical services personnel often lack the interoperable communications capabilities needed to coordinate and communicate across agencies and jurisdictions when disaster strikes.
The FirstNet network will help ensure first responders and the public safety community have access to the interoperable communications and technologies they need when they need them. This will let first responders focus on what matters most: protecting communities and saving lives.
