Puerto Rico Awarded $1.4 Million for FirstNet

By Wil Payton

The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) this week awarded $1.4 to Puerto Rico for the island’s First Responder Network Authority.

Known as FirstNet, the matching grant program administered by the NTIA is designed to assist regional, state, local, and tribal government entities as they plan for a nationwide public safety broadband network.

Below is an excerpt for a News Is My Business article on the award:

“Puerto Rico will leverage its existing governance body, the Puerto Rico Interoperable Communications Committee, and the recently established Puerto Rico Public Safety Broadband Network Committee, to implement its award,” the NTIA said.

“The Commonwealth intends to use the funds to update its Statewide Communication Interoperability Plan to include goals and initiatives related to public safety broadband,” the agency further noted.
