AT&T has wrapped up 200 upgrades to its network in Tampa Bay, the wireless carrier announced Monday. The upgrades are part of a statewide push to make its mobile service faster and more reliable.

Since January, AT&T increased its cell sites' capacity, allowing them to handle more volume and at faster speeds; expanded its network through smaller cell sites; and installed a new cell site in Palm Harbor.

The push follows a $175 million investment between 2016 and 2018 in Tampa Bay infrastructure to make network speeds faster.
