What does the multibillion-dollar FirstNet communications network mean for radio amateurs?

Have you heard of FirstNet and the 25 year contract won by AT&T to utilize the D-Block band for the latest effort to support interoperability?
Attached is a PDF of a article from the June 2017 QST magazine (page 9) by Tom Gallagher, NY2RF ARRL CEO – where in Tom asked the question:¬†“What does the multibillion dollar¬†FirstNet¬†communications network mean for radio amateurs?”
It’s an interesting read for all radio amateurs and especially those involved with, or active in public service communications (support).
