AT&T Plans $2B Support for FirstNet Deployment Effort to Expand Rural Coverage

TYSONS CORNER, VA, May 25, 2018 — AT&T (NYSE: T) plans to use an estimated $2 billion in funds for its First Responder Network Authority deployment effort to expand its communications coverage in rural areas and advance software upgrades to facilitate the delivery of 5G services through its cell cites, ExecutiveBiz reported Thursday.

The company will also tap personnel involved in the Band 14 equipment installation project to support operations on 20 megahertz of AWS-3 spectrum and 20 MHz of WCS spectrum, Urgent Communications reported Wednesday.

“Not only will we be building the network for first responders, it dawned on us that we should also be putting up stores and going after the consumers,” said John Donovan, CEO of AT&T Communications.
