NASHVILLE, Tenn., June 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- "The delivery of FirstNet's state plan for review within Tennessee is a significant step toward providing Tennessee's first responders with the services they need to help save lives and protect communities. We encourage Tennessee to move quickly to review the state plan. Following review, should Tennessee opt in, AT&T (NYSE: T) can begin delivering FirstNet services to Tennessee's public safety entities.
"This network will strengthen and modernize public safety communications in Tennessee 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 $1.2 billion in Tennessee's wired and wireless networks, and we will build upon that investment to bring first responders the coverage, value and experience they expect."
