Connecting First Responders in Rural Minnesota

​Emergencies have no boundaries. They can happen anytime and anywhere. That is why FirstNet’s wireless broadband service has a goal of connecting first responders no matter the location. This includes the remote 547-mile border between Minnesota and Canada as well as our state’s rural lake communities where so many people recreate. FirstNet’s coverage plan includes high power towers that can cover more real estate as well as satellite solutions. The network is currently working with future users, including Minnesota, to address rural communication needs and current concerns about lack of coverage.
