"We are pleased to share that the U.S. Court of Federal Claims has ruled in favor of FirstNet in the protest action. This is a positive development for public safety’s network. As we said we would, FirstNet has continued to work on the procurement up to the point of an award. We are ready to move forward on the necessary steps to finalize the contract for the nationwide public safety broadband network. Among the next steps will include a special FirstNet Board meeting. We will provide the details for the meeting as they become available."
