New Hampshire state panel makes FirstNet ‘opt-out’ recommendation to governor

| Urgent Communications

New Hampshire’s Statewide Interoperability Executive Committee (SIEC) yesterday voted unanimously to recommend that Gov. Chris Sununu choose to pursue the “opt-out” alternative to FirstNet, which calls for Rivada Networks to build and operate the public-safety LTE radio access network (RAN) in the state.

John Stevens, New Hampshire’s single point of contact (SPOC), said the SIEC vote was conducted yesterday morning during a SIEC meeting that included a quorum of the 30-member panel. According to draft minutes of the 12-minute meeting, 15 SIEC members voted for the “opt-out” recommendation while two members abstained.
