"Following our decision to opt-out and go with the Rivada plan that provides better coverage, more system control and an opportunity to share in the revenue streams of the business, we proceeded to have extensive discussions with other governors across the country to help them understand the benefits of such a system", Sununu said.

"While California remains concerned that the proposed plan does not meet all our state's needs, California is opting into the plan with the expectation that our concerns will be addressed throughout our partnership", Brown stated in his letter notifying FirstNet of the "opt-in" decision.

AT&T said it will rollout an app store and ecosystem for first responder specific apps. "I am grateful for their work, and look forward to continuing ahead with AT&T to ensure our first responders have the best tools available to them in times of crisis". The decision was made, the governor said, because of the risk associated with being the only state to opt-out of the network.

It wasn't until 2012 that Congress enacted the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet), but the telecom giant was not awarded the contract until March of this year.

FirstNet was announced earlier in 2017 and is being funded by a government contract with success-based payments of $6.5 billion - raised from previous FCC spectrum auctions.

"We proceeded to have extensive discussions with other governors across the country to help them understand the benefits of such a system", Sununu said.

The Dec. 28 deadline reflects the end of a 90-day period during which states were asked to decide whether they would participate or opt out. "Many of these states had previously expressed serious interest in pursuing an independent opt-out path".

"From giving public safety in New York City dedicated spectrum to bringing a reliable, high-speed wireless connection to rural and remote areas of the state, FirstNet will improve connectivity and foster innovation for law enforcement, fire and EMS", Poth said in a statement.

Phil Bryant today announced that he has accepted the nationwide public-safety broadband network (NPSBN) deployment plan offered by FirstNet and AT&T on behalf of his state, making MS the 46th state-not including three territories-to "opt-in" to the FirstNet system by today's deadline.
