LOUISVILLE, Ky., June 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- "The delivery of FirstNet's state plan for review within Kentucky is a significant step toward providing Kentucky's first responders with the services they need to help save lives and protect communities. We encourage Kentucky to move quickly to review the state plan. Following review, should Kentucky opt in, AT&T (NYSE: T) can begin delivering FirstNet services to Kentucky's public safety entities.
"This network will strengthen and modernize public safety communications in the Commonwealth and help first responders to operate faster, safer and more effectively when lives are on the line. The FirstNet network will also bring investment to America's communications infrastructure. During 2014-2016, AT&T invested nearly $700 million in Kentucky's wired and wireless networks, and we will build upon that investment to bring first responders the coverage, value and experience they expect."
