The Issue

A Commitment to Reliable and Secure Networks

Keeping America Safe is dedicated to helping our public officials protect communities, consumers and national security. To do this, we support the creation of reliable and secure next-generation mobile networks as well as FirstNet, the first high-speed national broadband network solely dedicated to America’s public safety community.

FirstNet, which is now transitioning to 5G, was created to alleviate communication challenges for public safety and to allow first responders to coordinate and respond more efficiently during times of emergency or crisis. Since FirstNet’s inception in 2017, over 14,000 public agencies have subscribed with over 1.7 million connections.

U.S. mobile networks are as secure as any in the world, and wireless providers have demonstrated their commitment to building highly secure 5G networks. We believe that network diversity in the form of multiple, competing networks enhances security and drives the innovation and investment that will keep all Americans safe and connected.
