Dec 30, 2017 12:15 am
Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Dec. 28 that New York is joining the FirstNet First Responder Network – a nationwide, high speed, wireless broadband network created for first responders and public safety officers. AT&T and the federal government set up the network. "The entire state, from the Great Lakes to the most remote areas of the Adirondacks to New York City, must have seamless communication for our public safety community so that they can get more information quickly, make better informed decisions, and save lives," Cuomo said in a press release. AT&T will build, operate, and maintain the wireless broadband communications network at no cost to the state.
