Safety measures_S

Our Safety Measures

We're doing all we can to continue safely serving you.

Here’s what you can expect during a typical installation:

GCI Technician Installation
The technician will complete most of the installation from outside your home. Installation activities will be limited to the activation of existing service or a single outlet to provide new services. A follow up appointment can be scheduled after normal operations have been restored if additional work is required.

Once the technician arrives at your address they will call you from outside your home to provide you with the steps necessary for a safe and speedy installation as well as answer any questions you may have regarding the process.

Your technician will be equipped with personal protective equipment including a CDC approved face mask and gloves. The technician will maintain adequate social distancing throughout the installation process.

By following these guidelines GCI will deliver a safe and speedy in-home installation with the same great customer service you expect.

Customer Self Installation
When you add new internet service or update your modem, you'll be asked to be asked to receive your new modem through the mail or to go to a GCI store to pick up your equipment. Once you have your equipment, the box will include easy step-by-step instructions for install. We find that most customers can complete their self installs in just 10-15 minutes.

Internet Self Install Guide

GCI employees are deep cleaning our stores, including more frequent disinfection of display technology and wiping down door handles, counters, and cash registers.

GCI employees will be wearing a mask at all times.

We have placed additional emphasis on the importance of hand washing with emails and increased signage.

We are limiting the total occupancy allowed in each store at a time.

Employees are following CDC recommendations and staying home when sick and after traveling to high-risk areas. Any employee who is sick is sent home.

To provide each of our Alaska neighbors the safest store experience possible, we ask our customers to use these guidelines:

  • In the last 10 days if you or anyone in your household have experienced symptoms that the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) believe may indicate COVID-19 we require that you instead call or visit us online.
  • For community safety, facial coverings are required for entry.
  • Stay 6 feet away from others.

Simply want to make a payment?

  • Credit card payments can be made online at my.gci.com.

We can do nearly anything you can do in store, over the phone! We can mail you new phones, Wi-Fi modems, or whatever else you need - no store visit necessary. Just give us a call at 1-800-800-4800 to get started and we'll have the tech you need delivered right to your door.

Our pledge_S

Our pledge to you

From ensuring uninterrupted service to protecting Alaskans with dedicated safety measures, we’re putting your needs above all.

We have joined other carriers across the nation in signing the Keep Americans Connected Pledge, helping ensure our customers stay connected during this critical time.

GCI pledges for the next 60 days to:

  • Not terminate service to any residential or small business customers because of their inability to pay their bills due to COVID-19.
  • Waive late fees any residential or small business customers incur because of their economic circumstances due to COVID-19
  • Open our Wi-Fi hotspots to any American who needs them.

If your ability to pay is impacted by this pandemic, please contact us so we can work with you individually to waive late fees and avoid suspended service.

As an Alaska-born-and-raised company serving communities across the state for more than 40 years, nothing is more important to us at GCI than the health and well-being of our employees and customers. GCI knows how important it is for you to stay connected, and that’s important to us, too!

GCI has a dedicated COVID-19 response team that includes company leadership representing all critical functions. This team supports GCI’s ongoing assessment of and response to the evolving coronavirus situation, following guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, other health authorities and government officials.
