Today the Department of Commerce and First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) announced the selection of AT&T to build the first nationwide wireless broadband network dedicated to America’s first responders.

In a formal signing ceremony, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross made the announcement. He and others who spoke, including House Commerce Committee Chairman Greg Walden (R-OR), Communications and Technology Subcommittee Chair Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and FCC Chairman Ajit Pai called this an “historic day” and said the approximately $40+B total award over the lifetime of the contract for the public-safety broadband network is a “milestone.”
