ALAMOSA COUNTY ó†Verizonís plan to bring six new cell phone towers to the Valley kicked off Wednesday when the Alamosa County Commissioners (ACC) unanimously approved a special use permit for the first Highway 160 location.

The communications provider intends to install the six towers to fill the cell phone service void in eastern Alamosa County and northwest Costilla County, placing three towers in each, said Verizon representative Kelly Harrison, Closser Consulting during the ACCís regular meeting. The towers are part of the Phase II wireless system, will enable 4G LTE data capabilities and will provide emergency responders with more defined information that is now sometimes impossible to access starting in 2014.
