First Responders Get the Mission-Critical
Connectivity they Require on America's Public Safety Network and
Now Save 25% for their Family on America's Most Reliable 5G
DALLAS, Aug. 8, 2022
What's the news? AT&T* is delivering 'FirstNet
and Family,' a simplified experience that gives America's first
responders the best of 2 networks – public safety's
FirstNet® network and the AT&T commercial network – to
keep their worlds connected. Public safety gets mission-critical,
always-on priority connectivity on FirstNet, and beginning
August 9 their family members get to
save 25% on eligible unlimited wireless plans2 on the
AT&T commercial network – all on a single account.
Why is this important? For those who dedicate their
lives to serving their communities, many only see the badge, the
firehose, or the stethoscope; but first responders are also moms
and dads, husbands and wives, daughters and sons. As public
safety's partner, we're ensuring they have the best customer
experience for their entire household, while also delivering on the
best connectivity required for their professional operations and
familial commitments. With FirstNet and Family, getting the right
kind of connectivity (whether a first responder on FirstNet or a
family member on AT&T) is easier and more inclusive while
helping take care of the family with significant savings.
Today, more than 21,800 agencies and organizations – accounting
for 3.7 million connections3 – use FirstNet, Built with
AT&T to stay mission-ready. We've seen significant growth
in FirstNet because the public safety community recognizes
commercial networks aren't designed – and are not subject to the
rigorous level of oversight and accountability by the federal
government – to properly handle the specific and niche demands of
first responders. They were built to meet the broad needs of the
general population (the family). And that's why public safety has
How is FirstNet better than commercial networks for first
responders? FirstNet is the only network built with and
for America's first responders. Created following the 9/11
terrorist attacks, FirstNet is providing first responders with
superior security, truly dedicated coverage and capacity when they
need it and unique benefits they can't get anywhere else. It is the
only network that gives first responders always-on priority
and preemption. Every day. Around the clock. No matter where in the
U.S. the emergency is happening. This is revolutionary. And it's
essential because we can't predict when or where emergencies are
going to happen. With FirstNet, the public safety community never
has to waste critical time dialing codes or asking for permissions.
Because when seconds matter, you don't have time to wait for
