New Hampshire’s first responders deserve reliable coverage across the state to help them effectively and efficiently address incidents. And with FirstNet, that’s exactly what they’re getting.
FirstNet is the nationwide, wireless communications platform dedicated to America’s first responders and the public safety community. It’s built with AT&T in a public-private partnership with the FirstNet Authority – an independent federal agency within the Department of Commerce.
On February 14, 2020, AT&T, FirstNet and New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu announced the addition of 4 new, purpose-built cell sites, plus 100+ other network enhancements and cutting-edge resources that bring increased coverage, capacity and capabilities for public safety.
Joining us at this event in Concord were public safety officials from across the state. Speakers included First Net Authority Executive Director Ed Parkinson, NH Safety Commissioner Robert Quinn, Statewide Interoperability Coordinator John T. Stevens and Derry Police Chief Edward Garone. In the Fall of 2018, the Derry Police Department became the first public safety agency in the state to join FirstNet and Chief Garone spoke about how it has revolutionized his department.
And all this new infrastructure is boosting network reliability and capacity as well, helping New Hampshire residents, visitors and businesses get the best possible experience over the AT&T network wherever they live, work and play.

In other news, last week we joined New Hampshire Jobs for America’s Graduates (NH-JAG) to announce $175,500 in contributions from AT&T over the past eighteen months to support underserved high school students in New Hampshire as they prepare for college and a career. The efforts at NH-JAG provide impactful resources for New Hampshire’s youth, and we are very proud to continue our support as they engage more local students.
We look forward to continuing to work on behalf of New Hampshire – its first responders, its students and its communities.
