GCI is committed to keeping Alaskans connected. Federal funding from the Alaska Plan helps GCI invest in the technology and infrastructure necessary to connect some of the smallest and most-remote communities in the nation. The Alaska Plan, approved in August 2016, secured federal funding through 2026 to support wireless and internet service upgrades. GCI receives a portion of that funding. Because of the Alaska Plan, Alaska telecommunications companies have been able to improve and expand service in more than 120 rural Alaska communities.
