Vermont Receives First SatCOLT

03 October 2018

The presence of the Nationwide Public Safety Broadband Network (NPSBN) in Vermont is growing. Vermont was the first state in New England to receive one of the new SatCOLTs built by AT&T under the FirstNet contract. The SatCOLT (Satellite Cell Site on Light Truck) was on display at the Vermont Emergency Preparedness Conference in September. Seventy members of the public safety community attended the FirstNet demonstrations on deployable technology at the conference and had a chance to see the new unit. The SatCOLT is owned and operated for public safety by AT&T and is housed at the company’s facility in South Burlington. Learn more by reading this story from our October newsletter.


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