Maryland’s Tilghman Island Receives New FirstNet Site
Wednesday, August 28, 2019 | Comments

AT&T is adding a site in Tilghman Island, part of Talbot County, Maryland, as part of its First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) network expansion.

AT&T said the FirstNet build is underway with direct feedback from state and public-safety officials in Maryland. The Tilghman Island site is the second FirstNet site to be publicly announced in Maryland. The site is located on Tilghman Island Road across from the Tilghman Island Volunteer Fire Department. An additional new AT&T cell site in the Bozman area is located near Lostock Lane and Bozman Neavitt Road.

The two new sites were constructed using the FirstNet band 14 spectrum, as well as other spectrum bands in the AT&T commercial spectrum portfolio. Band 14 has also been added to existing sites across Maryland. The Talbot County Department of Emergency Services recently subscribed to FirstNet.

“Our member companies, their employees, our year-round residents and the thousands of visitors who join us every summer want better mobile broadband coverage, and that’s what they’ll have thanks to these sites,” said Talbot County Chamber President Alan Silverstein. “This is great news for our county.”
