In addition to the investment announcement, the company also announced a variety of new initiatives related to the platform. To combat dead zones inside structures, AT&T is collaborating with the Safer Buildings Coalition to create new code requirements and in-building communications capabilities.

The company also announced it was adding a third “emergency pathway” to reinforce the reliability of the FirstNet platform, like a “’backup’ to the ‘backup’” line,” according to a company press release.
