Earlier this year, AT&T stated that FirstNet users will be able to subscribe to MCPTT services from multiple vendors that are “fully compliant” with the 3GPP standard during the second half of next year. Chris Sambar, AT&T’s senior vice president for the FirstNet program, said those plans are still in place.
“[FirstNet users] will have multiple choices,” Sambar said during an interview with IWCE’s Urgent Communications. “We’re going to have one launch, and then we’re going to have another one after that.”
