As our nation and communities continue to recover from the impacts of the pandemic, our teams are working hard to keep first responders and customers connected. We’re also marking AAPI Heritage Month with a post from one of our company leaders, and we are enrolling eligible customers in the FCC’s temporary Emergency Broadband Benefit Program.
Baltimore Police Department has connected more than 3,000 officers, first responders and other key personnel to FirstNet. With this tech advancement, the department is equipping its first responders with new capabilities and reliable access to critical information while in the field, allowing them to better serve those who live, work and visit Baltimore.
AT&T customers and FirstNet subscribers in Kent County, Md., got a big boost in wireless connectivity. We’ve added a new cell site in Galena to enhance the area’s mobile broadband coverage and help give residents and first responders faster, more reliable wireless service. Our investment will help customers get the most out of their mobile devices.

The history of Asians, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) is one that I’m proud to share with millions around our country and billions around the world. Our collective stories are rich and tie us to lineages and cultures that span millennia. It’s truly an honor to share this moment with you as we celebrate Asian, Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month.
We believe that broadband connectivity is essential for all Americans. People depend on technologies like the internet to stay connected to every part of their lives.
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought national awareness to the lack of internet accessibility for millions of Americans – especially for low-income families. That’s why we are working to help households stay connected. AT&T is participating in the FCC’s Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) Program to help eligible households with connectivity costs during the pandemic.
In these difficult economic times, the EBB will help qualifying households reduce wireline home internet or wireless service costs for activities like job searches, telehealth, remote work, and distance learning. EBB enrollment is now open, and the benefit can be applied to select plans for both new and existing AT&T and Cricket Wireless customers.
