First responders in Tioga County to get FirstNet network expanding wireless communications



Tioga County, New York – Thanks to the FirstNet® network expansion currently underway by AT&T, first responders in Tioga County are getting another major boost in their wireless communications.

New, purpose-built FirstNet cell sites will enhance voice and mobile broadband coverage in the county and give first responders on FirstNet – America’s public safety network – access to always-on, 24-hours-a-day priority and preemption across voice and data.

The FirstNet build is being done with direct feedback from state and public safety officials.

On Thursday at the Middlebury Center Fire Department, the FirstNet build will be announced at the areas that need improved coverage.
