The advanced network for
first responders on the front lines.
America’s most reliable
Our 5G network can provide speed and low latency to those on the front lines. With the power and bandwidth that 5G can provide, first responders can have near real-time situational awareness and be better equipped for crisis response.
Making first responders
Our intelligent platform automatically activates priority and preemption to help first responders to stay connected.3 So those on the front lines get the information they need when it matters most.
