A new site in Voorhees improves coverage and capacity along Haddonfield-Berlin Road and Egg Harbor Road and along United States Avenue; and a new site in Aldine provides improved coverage and capacity along East Main Street and Alloway-Woodstown Road.
FirstNet provides dedicated mobile broadband to the country’s first responders. The company said it was shaped by the vision of Congress and the first responder community following 9/11. It was built with AT&T in public-private partnership with the First Responder Network Authority, an independent agency within the federal government.
“When our first responders need to relay or receive critical information, that critical communication can’t be interrupted. AT&T’s expansion of FirstNet in South Jersey ensures that our public safety professionals are always connected when they — and our residents — need it the most,” said Camden County Commissioner Jonathan Young on the FirstNet sites.
FirstNet sites were constructed using both AT&T commercial spectrum and Band 14 spectrum, a spectrum set aside for first responders by the government.
“AT&T has gone through great lengths to afford first responders a secure, high quality, and highly dependable network. FirstNet gives us peace of mind so that we can focus our attention where it needs to be, without worrying about the stability of communications,” Lt. Chuck Angelus of the Salem County Sheriff’s Office added.
“We look forward to the complete build out of our new site in Salem County and the security and reliability it will bring with it for all of us and the community we serve. “
