Herrell Push Leads to Improved Cell Coverage, Emergency Communications in Catron County

June 16, 2021

WASHINGTON — Congresswoman Herrell (R-N.M.) today announced her office successfully pushed for quick actions to improve cell phone and emergency communications coverage in Catron County.

“This is great news that will expand cell coverage and enhance public safety,” said Herrell. “I’m glad my office was able to work with the county and service providers to move things along.”

By next week, a temporary Verizon tower will begin providing service until outdated 3G towers can be replaced with the upgraded towers. Two new, permanent towers are scheduled to be installed in the coming weeks and months.
