Puerto Rico becomes second U.S. territory to ‘opt-in’ to FirstNet


Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló announces his decision to accept the nationwide public-safety broadband network (NPSBN) deployment plan offered by FirstNet and AT&T on behalf of his territory, making Puerto Rico the second U.S. territory—along with 17 states—to “opt-in” to the FirstNet system.

“With this new tool we reinforce the exchange of information between the security agencies and the response during an emergency. We are convinced that improving the communication between the components of public safety will be for the betterment of the people of Puerto Rico,” said Governor Rosselló.
