FirstNet, built by AT&T is public safety's dedicated, nationwide communications platform. It's bringing public safety communications into the 21st century with new, innovative capabilities to strengthen first responders' incident response. And it's helping them connect to the critical information they need every day and in every emergency.


FirstNet, built by AT&T is the only nationwide, high-speed broadband communications platform dedicated to and purpose-built for Americas first responders and the extended public safety community. Shaped by the vision of Congress and the first responder community following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, FirstNet stands above commercial offerings.


AT&T is driving innovation in lifesaving, public safety technology. And, for the 3rd consecutive year, Frost & Sullivan recognizes AT&T for driving visionary innovation in public safety by introducing smart solutions that cater to the evolving demands of first responders.

Now, public safety has FirstNet and it is not a commercial network. FirstNet is specifically designed with and for public safety, based on what they asked for to advance their communications. As public safetys network, FirstNet is evolving based on the needs of and feedback from first responders.
