California makes FirstNet ‘opt-in’ decision but expresses reservations

Despite expressing some concerns, California Gov. Jerry Brown announces that he accepted the nationwide public-safety broadband network (NPSBN) deployment plan offered by FirstNet and AT&T.

“While California remains concerned that the proposed plan does not meet all our state’s needs, California is opting into the plan with the expectation that our concerns will be addressed throughout our partnership,” Brown stated in his letter notifying FirstNet of the “opt-in” decision.

“California looks forward to working with FirstNet to address the gaps in the proposed plan throughout the 25-year deployment and implementation period.”
