During the rollout, AT&T said it will continue to explore upgrades like 5G.

AT&T has said it will spend $40 billion on the FirstNet project, which is expected to create 10,000 jobs in the U.S.

The change comes three weeks after Sununu chose to opt-out of FirstNet, and award a contract to Rivada Networks for the build out of the network.

FirstNet aims to provide a nationwide broadband network for America's public safety community "with access to new technologies and increased capacity and reliability for their mobile communications and data needs".

In a statement released today, New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu announced the state would reverse their previous decision to opt-out of FirstNet, the nation's public safety broadband network, and instead opt-in to the national network being built by AT&T, rather than pursue an independent network for New Hampshire alone which would have been built by Rivada. New Hampshire has been studying a network proposal from Rivada Networks.

The network would give preference to first responder calls, ensuring that they're able to communicate with each other during large events, similar to the Seahawks Super Bowl victory parade in 20145, when local cell towers were clogged up. "With more than 50 states and territories participating in FirstNet, public safety is assured of an enduring, self-sufficient network to serve them for years to come". Some had explored other options, but ultimately chose to go with FirstNet. As of publication time on December 28, 51 states and territories have opted in to FirstNet, while two states - California and Florida - and three territories - Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands and American Samoa - have not made a decision. "We are pleased that the state's vigorous pursuit of the opt-out path left us in a stronger position than any other state in the country".
