US Cellular partners Rivada on first responder network in Wisconsin

Tuesday 17 October 2017 | 08:29 CET | News
US Cellular agreed to assist Rivada Networks in the development of the network for first responders in Wisconsin should the state governor choose to opt-out of FirstNet's deployment plan for New Hampshire. On 6 July, Rivada, U.S. Cellular and other companies submitted a proposal to Wisconsin for a statewide public-safety broadband network. Should Wisconsin opt out, Rivada and U.S. Cellular are ready to work together to make this custom-built, statewide wireless network a success, while also driving incremental value and lowering the cost of telecommunications for public safety for the state.
