But not everybody supports the decision. District 1 Executive Councilor John Kenney, a Republi- can, has criticized the decision. He issued the following statement: "I'm very concerned with the Governor's decision today to opt out of FirstNet/AT&T, and to instead contract with Rivada, an inexperienced startup that has never built a wireless network before," Kenney said. "New Hampshire should not gamble with public safety, or pass up the opportunity to provide wireless coverage for 99 percent of New Hampshire as guaranteed by FirstNet/AT&T. Rivada' s plan is untested, unproven, and will not work. I cannot support this decision, nor support a contract with Rivada, which would mean giving up on enhanced rural cover- age for my District and improving public safety. The North Country is waiting for FirstNet/AT&T build out and the possibility of using addi- tional Spectrum for commercial purposes."
