2018 is a big year for AT&T New Mexico and our customers

Posted by Terri Nikole Baca

Agencies across the state are signing up to improve their communications through FirstNet built by AT&T. As we continue to invest in the FirstNet platform, we are also preparing to invest in small cell wireless technology designed to improve the experiences of our customers. It’s all part of our commitment to give New Mexicans the network they want and need.

Thank you,

New AT&T Built Public Safety Network Put to the Test'

Firstnet

Public safety agencies across New Mexico are beginning to connect to the country’s first communications platform dedicated to first responders. FirstNet built by AT&T, provides public safety clients a much-needed technology upgrade and was designed specifically to meet their particular needs, especially during times of emergency.

Earlier this spring, AT&T provided communications assistance during the state’s first wildfire of the year. As the 28,000 acre Stateline fire quickly spread, AT&T’s FirstNet team worked closely with Union County to ensure their communications needs were met, even bringing in additional equipment and resources.

AT&T stands ready to assist public safety agencies across New Mexico interested in taking their communications to the next level with FirstNet.


Meeting New Mexico’s Needs Today, Building for the Future

Small Cells

We want to thank the New Mexico Legislature for voting to remove barriers that have made it difficult for AT&T and other providers to invest in the latest wireless technology in our communities. Legislation sponsored by Representatives Debbie Rodella and Jim Smith and Senators Jacob Candelaria and Candace Gould streamlines the process for deploying small cells statewide. Small cells are a small, flexible network technology that can be placed on existing infrastructure to boost network capacity in congested areas. That means improved call quality and faster download speeds for wireless users in a small cell’s coverage area. The legislation passed by an overwhelming margin, and Gov. Susana Martinez signed it into law on Feb. 28.


Funding Education and Veteran Initiatives

Heores

This is our community, and we’re always looking for ways to give back. We’re proud of two recent funding announcements for two local organizations that are making a big difference in New Mexico. The United Way of Central New Mexico’s Mission: Graduate program recently won a GradNation Acceleration Grant funded by AT&T. The $100,000 grant will help Mission: Graduate toward its goal of raising graduation rates in our state.

As part of our Thank Our Heroes campaign, AT&T presented $30,000 to the Albuquerque based Desert Forge Foundation. Desert Forge works to help restore the emotional, mental and physical health of returning veterans through meaningful job training, employment and the arts. Desert Forge is using the money to assist with its Warrior Farmers project, which trains veterans to farm and take their products to market.
