Governors will have an opportunity to accept the state plan for deploying a public-safety broadband network within the borders as soon as this month, a FirstNet official announced today at the organization’s meeting of state points of contact (SPOCs) in the Dallas area.
Representatives of FirstNet and AT&T—FirstNet’s nationwide contractor—previously have stated that governors would receive their draft state plan from FirstNet this month and that fall is the target timeframe for final state plans, after which governors could accept the state plan or choose to pursue the “opt-out” alternative.
