Investments that we make in Kansas 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 $775 million in our Kansas wireless and wired networks during 2014-2016.
In 2016, AT&T made 630 wireless network upgrades in Kansas, including new cell sites, expanded capacity at existing cell sites.
Following last year’s passage of wireless siting legislation, AT&T will continue its investment in Kansas with additional upgrades.
Thanks to the support and the hard work of the legislature and other Kansas leaders, we're now speeding our wireless buildout plans in Kansas with tens of millions of dollars dedicated to improving our mobile network. This investment will also pave the path to 5G mobile services in the years ahead.
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 the State of Kansas 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.
