What is FirstNet?

FirstNet is the nationwide public safety broadband network, services and solutions that are dedicated to First Responders and those that support them. It is more than a network, including advanced services, applications and purpose-built devices. By working with you, we are committed to advancing public safety, making your communications simpler, faster and more collaborative.

 

Why Work with Two Way Direct?

AT&T and the First Responder Network Authority grant FirstNet Dealer status to a select group of companies with deep knowledge of public safety. Dealers are authorized to be your FirstNet sales consultant to ensure this game-changing technology gets into the hands of first responders throughout the United States. Two Way Direct is proud to be a FirstNet Dealer and part of the FirstNet mission. 

FirstNet is built for public safety and inspired by public safety.

It is up and working across the country. One example is Brazos County Texas, home of the Fighting Texas Aggies and College Station. There FirstNet is fully adopted and deployed - county wide - by the Sheriff’s Office and proving to be a critical part of how the responders are doing their job - every day.

FirstNet's origin

The concept of a dedicated broadband network for first responders started as a recommendation of the FCC 911 commission report. Since this time, this has been a major initiative for our government and to oversee the effort, the First Responder Network Authority was established.

In 2017, AT&T was honored with the opportunity to provide the capabilities to build FirstNet. After a lot of hard work, we wrapped up last year with all 50 states and territories opting in.

While FirstNet is a stand-alone brand, we have a special relationship with AT&T. FirstNet is built with AT&T for and by public safety. Today, we are working with you to develop tools that will help you do your job, better.

It makes sense to partner with experience. AT&T has over 100 years of experience in providing emergency response solutions and has leading security that ensures FirstNet is secure and built for dependability.

FirstNet's impact

FirstNet is not conceptual. It is up and working across the country. One example is Brazos County Texas, home of the Fighting Texas Aggies and College Station. There FirstNet is fully adopted and deployed - county wide - by the Sheriff’s Office and proving to be a critical part of how the responders are doing their job - every day.
