FirstNet is Connecting More First Responders Across Iowa

Source: FirstNet

FirstNet rolled out Band 14 across Iowa to provide public safety with truly dedicated coverage and capacity when they need it by increasing our network by nearly 25%. Areas benefitting from Band 14 cover the entire state.

Mike Ralston - President, Iowa Association of Business and Industry:
“We couldn’t be more pleased to support the public safety mission in Iowa by bringing our first responders – and residents – greater access to the connectivity they need. “When Iowa opted-in to FirstNet five years ago, we knew it would bring not only enhanced communications capabilities for our fire, police and emergency teams but would also stimulate investment in high-speed wireless connectivity and expand our broadband infrastructure to all corners of the state.”
