A Massive Emergency Cellular Switch Exploded In Nashville, First Net Switch Taken Out, FBI Won’t Let Local PD Access The Infrastructure – No MSM Reports

An explosion shook the largely deserted streets of downtown Nashville early Christmas morning, shattering windows, damaging buildings, and wounding three people. Authorities said they believed the blast was intentional. The FBI is leading the investigation.

The police came across a suspicious RV parked outside a nearby AT&T building near Second Avenue and Commerce Street before 6 a.m., when initially responding to calls of shots fired in the area, said Metro police spokesperson Don Aaron.

There was no immediate evidence of any shooting but officers alerted the department’s bomb squad, which was en route when a “significant explosion” happened about 30 minutes later, Aaron said.

Locals reported gun shots before the explosion as you can see in the video below:

The explosion of an RV parked near a transmission building in Nashville disrupted AT&T service in the region and caused a ground stop at the city’s main airport, officials said.

“We continue to work to restore service for customers in Nashville and the surrounding areas who were affected by this morning’s explosion,” AT&T spokesman Jim Greer said in a statement hours after the incident. “We have mobilized additional resources including our National Disaster Recovery team and are bringing in multiple portable cell sites to assist in the recovery efforts.”

AT&T is deploying portable cell towers to Nashville to support law enforcement and improve wireless service. CNN’s parent company, WarnerMedia, is owned by AT&T.
An emergency responder cellular switch also exploded and shutdown the first net switch.
For all not familiar with FirstNet/ATT

The FirstNet mission is to deploy, operate, maintain, and improve the first high-speed, nationwide wireless broadband network for first responders, public safety, …
Many 1st responders have it.

Just two weeks ago AT&T scored a major win for FirstNet, landing a contract valued at around $92 million to provide FirstNet mobility services for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

The five-year deal is basically all new business for AT&T, according to Stacy Schwartz, VP of FirstNet Program at AT&T, and represents the largest commitment to FirstNet by a law enforcement or public safety agency to date.

“We’re extremely proud to be supporting a preeminent law enforcement agency like the FBI, we take a great deal of pride in working with them,” Schwartz told FierceWireless, adding that it’s a big accomplishment for AT&T and FirstNet.

Local patriots did post some interesting stuff and alleged that the target could have been the AT&T Nashville building, and why did someone target the building.

Some more context on the technical stuff:

Some people alleged that the bomb did not happen at the main ATT building, whosee address is (AT&T Building, 333 Commerce St, Nashville, TN 37201) . It happened about 2 blocks away and the Bell South Building which seems to have been closed for years, google maps. Likely where they have all the att servers which most people would not know. It looks like there was a small att phone store on the street level of the bell south building but why go there if your main building is a couple of blocks away.

The feds wouldn’t even let local PD and the infrastructure engineers to fix it according to this brave patriot:

As of this morning, the Federal Aviation Administration has classified the airspace around the site of Friday morning’s bombing in downtown Nashville as “National Defense Airspace,” saying “deadly force” could be used as a last resort against any pilot appearing to pose a security threat.

An alert issued by the FAA warned pilots of the temporary flight restrictions for one nautical mile, which is approximately 1.15 miles, around the site of the explosion along Second Avenue North near Commerce Street.

Pilots not adhering to the restrictions “may be intercepted, detained and interviewed by law enforcement/security personnel,” according to the alert. It stated the FAA could impose civil penalties and suspension or revocation of airmen certificates, while the United States government could pursue criminal charges or “use deadly force” against the aircraft if it is determined that it “poses imminent security threat.”

The restrictions are effective Friday through 4:45 p.m. on Dec. 30.

So bomb explodes damage AT&T building and the server farm it houses, along with switches, trunk lines, and much more. AT&T telecomms go offline throughout the Nashville region. Phones down, wifi down. Nashville airport cancels flights because comms are affected by this outage.

No doubt the FBI will make sense of this all in the end, but what will the Americans think about it?
