Excess capacity on band 14 will be used for consumers (when not needed for public safety)...that's the entire economic model of FirstNet and what makes it desirable for their partner (at&t).
In terms of rural coverage, the law that created firstnet requires firstnet (at&t) to build rural areas as well.
What exactly that means for improved coverage, we'll see. I'm sure if at&t adds a site somewhere, they will put multiple bands on it...building and only putting 14 on it makes little sense.
