Nurses and Physicians to receive three months of free service on a FirstNet Mobile-Responder Plan

by AT&T

They are here for us,
so we are here for them

Frontline nurses and physicians nationwide on FirstNet, will be receiving three months of free smartphone or tablet service on their FirstNet Mobile-Responder plan, FirstNet builder AT&T announced April 12. 

John Krasinski relayed the good news in the third episode of his digital show “Some Good News,” where he covers only positive news from around the world.

“Tonight’s ‘Some Good News’ shined a light on our healthcare heroes,” said Jeff McElfresh, CEO, AT&T Communications. “They are working around the clock, on the frontlines to combat the COVID-19 health crisis. We want to be there to keep them connected. And that’s exactly what FirstNet delivers.”

The episode features Krasinski and some hometown friends surprising a handful of nurses at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center with a field trip to Fenway Park, where they threw out the first pitch of 2020. Inspired, and to keep the good news going, FirstNet builder, AT&T, surprised the nurses featured on the show and nurses and physicians all across the country.

Nurses and physicians already on a FirstNet Mobile-Responder plan will automatically receive the 3-month service credit1 on a smartphone or tablet line of service. Starting Monday, April 13, new subscribers are also eligible, connecting them to reliable critical communications with available always-on priority access to the network2, with the fastest overall nationwide network experience.3

In addition to three months of free service, nurses and physicians signing-on to FirstNet can get a $200 activation credit4 when activating a new FirstNet Ready™ smartphone on a new FirstNet Mobile-Responder plan.

The COVID-19 health crisis illustrates precisely why public safety fought for the creation of FirstNet, the only nationwide high-speed broadband communications platform dedicated to and built for America’s first responders. FirstNet continues to grow because of its unique public safety features that wireless networks built for the general public can’t provide. These include innovative, mission-focused tools and technologies, always-on, always-ready priority and preemption for first responders, FirstNet Ready™ devices, a robust ecosystem of highly secure and public safety tested apps, a fleet of dedicated network deployables and more.

The work we do is critical to millions of people and companies around the world, and we’re committed to being there when our customers, employees and first responders need us most during the COVID-19 pandemic. As public safety’s communications network partner, we have a responsibility unlike any other wireless carrier, and the FirstNet Authority holds AT&T accountable to deliver the solutions that meet public safety’s needs today and for decades to come. FirstNet was built for this situation.
