DENVER, March 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- "We are honored to be selected to build and manage America's first-ever nationwide public safety broadband network. Now the real work begins. We look forward to working with Colorado's state and local public safety officials to build a strong and highly secure communications network that meets the unique needs of our state's first responders.
"We take seriously our twenty-five-year commitment to build and manage this network for the state of Colorado. Our history here includes more than 100 years of serving Coloradans. In just three years alone (2013-15), we invested nearly $580 million in Colorado's wired and wireless networks and now, we will build upon that investment with a dedicated focus on Colorado's first responders.
"Highly secure networks that are designed to combat cyberattacks are of upmost importance, especially for the fast, efficient and timely communications capabilities first responders require. AT&T secures more connections than any communications company in America and we are proud to bring that depth and scale of cyber security and network experience to Colorado's public safety network."
