(WTXL) — AT&T is providing three months of free wireless service to nurses and doctors across the country who've been on the frontlines battling COVID-19.

On Sunday night, during John Krasinski’s latest episode of “Some Good News,” AT&T shared some good news with frontline nurses and physicians by surprising them with free wireless service on the nationwide network built exclusively for first responders, called FirstNet.

Now, the company is keeping good news going by spreading that offer to nurses and doctors all across the country.

The free FirstNet service extends to all nurses and physicians nationwide starting on April 13, and applies to both new and existing AT&T subscribers.

The company says this offer gives them access to exclusive FirstNet features that aren’t available through standard wireless service from any carrier.

FirstNet was built exclusively for first responders based on 9/11 Commission recommendations to enhance communications for the public safety community, according to AT&T.

This includes health care first responders, law enforcement and firefighters, along with 911 communicators and emergency managers.

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