NH decides to opt in to FirstNet after all

30 December 2017, 01:11 | Vickie Mathis



According to analysts on Wall Street, AT&T can use FirstNet to widen its broadband coverage. While we were successful in working with FirstNet to remove the unreasonable fees and penalties, the decision deadline of December 28th approached too quickly for these other states to feel confident in an opt-out decision. "Many of these states had previously expressed serious interest in pursuing an independent opt-out path".

Phil Bryant today announced that he has accepted the nationwide public-safety broadband network (NPSBN) deployment plan offered by FirstNet and AT&T on behalf of his state, making MS the 46th state-not including three territories-to "opt-in" to the FirstNet system by today's deadline.

In an accompanying letter, Director Ghilarducci explains, "While significant progress was made, more work is needed for the FirstNet State Plan to ultimately be a successful initiative that provides a durable public safety communications network".

Florida has joined a national program created to improve mobile communications for first responders.

Washington's first responders will soon have an easier time communicating with each other during emergencies and natural disasters.

It wasn't until 2012 that Congress enacted the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet), but the telecom giant was not awarded the contract until March of this year.

In Washington and OR, as in Colorado, an AT&T commitment to "additional tower investments" proved key.

"California is hopeful that AT&T and FirstNet will meaningfully partner with Cal OES and will continue to engage with state officials during the buildout of the public-safety network in California to address the needs of our emergency responders". "They offered more sites and they offered more deployables, which are cells [sites] on wheels".

But he could not convince other states to join in.

Colorado issued a conditional award in November to a team that included USA -based Rivada and the Australian financial services provider Macquarie Group - a pact subsequently invalidated when it became the 40th state to join FirstNet.

FirstNet is also supposed to improve civilian cell coverage in rural areas of the state.

"Essentially they're adding capacity where there was no capacity", Tade said.
