Jeremy Zollo, FirstNet Authority executive director for enterprise strategy, said that FirstNet Authority officials have been meeting regularly with public-safety representatives for the past several months to get first-responder input about how the FirstNet Authority can best utilize funding from AT&T during the 25-year contract.
“This is all going to come out all at the same time, no later than the end of this month—that’s our target,” Zollo said Sunday during an APCO 2019 conference session, which he described as a “a sneak peek into the roadmap.”
