ABSTRACT
The article discusses the implications of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings for the U.S. First Responder Network Authority's (FirstNet) plan to share the Nationwide Public Safety Broadband Network (NPSBN) with commercial wireless operators. Background is presented on how the public and the media mistakenly believed that commercial networks were shutdown immediately after the bombings. Commercial networks were overloaded, which always happens during times of major incidents.
