FirstNet's Dave Buchanan and Mike Varney presenting to the Vermont Public Safety Broadband Commission

FirstNet's Director of Consultation,  Dave Buchanan and Region 1 Lead, Mike Varney presented to the Vermont Public Safety Broadband Commission about FirstNet's recently released  Request for Proposal that seeks to attract a commercial partner to help build the National Public Safety Broadband Network.  They also discussed the State Plan that will be given to Vermont's Governor after a commercial partner is selected.

The Vermont Public Safety Broadband Commission asked many clarifying questions about topics such as the proposed timeline for the network, how FirstNet plans to build out the network in Vermont, and the potential for additional coverage provided by the FirstNet system.


The FirstNet project is housed within the Radio Technology Services unit of the Department of Public Safety.
