Anchorage, Alaska – GCI has doubled re:D broadband’s top speed from 100 Mbps to 200 Mbps in Fairbanks, where customers of GCI re:D, Alaska’s premier Internet product, will experience this speed increase immediately at no additional cost.

“For more than 30 years, GCI has been committed to providing Alaskans with the latest communications technology, and providing the fastest Internet available in Fairbanks though our re:D service is another example of that,” said GCI Senior Vice President and General Manager of Consumer Services Paul Landes.

In addition to exceptionally fast download and upload speeds, GCI’s re:D includes the most broadband data usage ever offered by the company, an extraordinary 500,000 MB per month. GCI re:D broadband rates for consumers start at $174.99 per month.

GCI has long been committed to the Fairbanks market, where the company employs close to 40 people. In addition to now providing Fairbanks with the state’s fastest consumer Internets speeds, earlier this year GCI signed on as the official technology sponsor of the Arctic Winter Games to support this exciting community event.

re:D service is available for residential as well as enterprise customers. Learn more about GCI’s re:D broadband at www.gci.com/red, or call 800-800-4800.
