With its coverage goal of 99 percent of the U.S. population achieved, AT&T is extending the nationwide reach of FirstNet through a series of purpose-built towers.
So far, Band 14 has been deployed on existing cell sites in more than 700 markets nationwide. In areas where coverage already exists, it is using Band 14 to give first responders additional capacity.
