Investments that we make in Ohio provide for faster, more reliable, highly secure connectivity for our community — and improve critical services that support public safety and first responders. That’s why we’ve invested more than $1.4 billion in our Ohio wireless and wired networks during 2014-2016.
In 2016, AT&T made more than 1,900 wireless network upgrades in Ohio. We added more than 1,300 layers of radio frequency spectrum. We also expanded the number of radio frequencies used on more than 600 towers in Ohio.
The First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) recently chose AT&T to build a nationwide public safety broadband network. The network will be dedicated to America’s police, firefighters, EMS personnel and other first responders when they need it. Should Ohio opt in to the FirstNet network, we will build upon our current and planned investments with a dedicated focus on the state’s first responders. And we would expect to make a significant investment to upgrade and maintain Ohio’s FirstNet network over the next 25 years, bringing your first responders the coverage, value and experience they expect.
