CCA Supports Colorado FirstNet Request

The Competitive Carriers Association has submitted an ex parte filing supporting a recent filing by the Colorado Public Safety Broadband Governing Body (CPSBGB) that asked the Commission to clarify guidelines and requirements concerning interoperability and roaming between the nationwide public safety broadband network being built by AT&T, Inc., for the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) and wireless carriers (TR Daily, July 9). “The Commission should promptly place the Petition on Public Notice to allow additional parties the opportunity to weigh in on critical interoperability issues,” CCA said in a filing yesterday in PS dockets 16-269, 12-94, and 06-229 and WT dockets 06-150 and 12-69. However, the Colorado Governor’s Office of Information Technology has asked to withdraw the request (TR Daily, July 16). Southern Linc and C-Spire Wireless, Inc., also have supported the Colorado request.
