AT&T and FirstNet
FirstNet is a nationwide wireless network funded by the federal government built for first responders in response to the national emergency on September 11, 2001. After over a decade of debate, Congress authorized the US Department of Commence the authority to fund FirstNet to develop, build and operate the national broadband network that equips first responders with priority wireless access in case of emergencies. In 2017, AT&T was awarded the 25-year contract which includes building out some rural markets, improving the reliability of existing sites through the use of additional batteries and generators, and increasing network coverage and capacities. Property owners can benefit from this contract if they already have a cell tower in place with AT&T as a tenant or subtenant and these property owners know how to monetize the site modification opportunities. Property owners who receive an inquiry to build a cell tower on their land may not recognize if the tower is intended to serve FirstNet. This is where experience and expertise matter. Contact Terabonne anytime someone reaches out to you about the possibility of leasing land for cell tower or rooftop space from you.
