Public Safety Wireless Network Gets a $7 Billion Boost

Security officers will want to keep apprised of the emerging “D-block” wireless broadband network for first responders, now that it has $7 billion in federal funding to help it develop.

A New York City police official says the new network will “transform public safety communications the same way that two-way radio did in the 1930s.” A lot of public-private cooperation and lobbying went into making the D-block ¬†available for first-responder use. But the new network is now on its way to reality. Read this American City & County blog post on how that occurred. Nice work, all!
