FirstNet-approved device list names 163 smartphones, tablets, laptops

The number of devices that can operate on FirstNet, AT&T’s wireless public-safety network, has grown nearly tenfold since the first batch of 17 devices was approved in April 2018.


DATE: December 30, 2019

FirstNet devices fall into two categories: “FirstNet-ready,” which means they can access the network’s private core, running on Band 14, the 700-megahertz spectrum set aside for public-safety communications, or “FirstNet-capable,” which means they share wireless space with AT&T’s commercial customers, where they receive priority and preemption access over non-FirstNet users.

A list published in early December 2019 by the National Institute of Standards and Technology includes 163 FirstNet-ready and FirstNet-capable devices.
