AT&T completed $6.1 million in wireless and wired networks upgrades to expand capacity and coverage of Long-Term Evolution or LTE cellular coverage in Santa Fe.

The project largely involved upgrades of 10 cellular towers in Santa Fe to boost reliability, coverage, speed and overall performance, AT&T spokesman Scott Huscher said.

AT&T also improved its FirstNet communications platform for Santa Fe public safety and first responder agencies. FirstNet is built with AT&T in a public-private partnership with the First Responder Network Authority — an independent agency within the National Telecommunications and Information Administration.
