Find out more about the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) and the plan for Massachusetts.

FirstNet was created by Congress to provide first responders with a nationwide, high-speed, wireless network dedicated to public safety. The network can be used during emergencies and every day operations.

In 2017, FirstNet announced it picked AT&T to develop the network. This summer, FirstNet/AT&T presented each state with a plan for implementing the network in that state. The plan included information about coverage, cost, supported devices, and more. Massachusetts provided feedback and an updated version of the plan is expected this fall. The Governor will then have 90 days to make a decision about the plan.
