MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Verizon Wireless has announced that its high-speed 4G LTE network has been substantially completed in Alabama just two years after being launched in Montgomery and Mobile.

Verizon's president for the Georgia/Alabama region, Jonathan LeCompte, was joined by Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley and first lady Dianne Bentley at a Capitol news conference Tuesday to announce the grants. The grants included:

$10,000 to the Governor's Emergency Relief Fund, part of Verizon's commitment to tornado relief.

$10,000 to Ready Alabama's Be Ready Camp to help Alabama youth learn to be first responders.

$30,000 to the Alabama Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

$50.000 for grant proposals for domestic violence prevention programs.
