GCI brings nation’s fastest internet speeds to one of America’s northernmost military bases

November 29, 2018

Alaska’s fastest unlimited internet plan available for as low as $99 per month in Ft. Greely

FT. GREELY, Alaska – Military members and their families stationed in Alaska’s Interior just got even more connected with the launch of GCI’s 1 GIG internet service at Ft. Greely. Due to GCI’s aggressive investment in 1 GIG deployment, more than 77 percent of Alaskans have access to 1 GIG internet speeds on GCI’s cutting-edge fiber optic network.

“Ft. Greely is a critical piece of America’s missile defense system,” said Paul Landes, senior vice president, Consumer Services. “We want to make sure that the soldiers at that installation, one of the most remote in the nation, are able to stay connected with friends and loved ones around the globe with the nation’s fastest internet speeds.”

Ft. Greely joins a growing list of 16 Alaska communities with access to 1 GIG speeds, including: Ketchikan, Wrangell, Petersburg, Sitka, Juneau, Kodiak, Valdez, Seward, Kenai, Soldotna, Palmer, Wasilla, Anchorage, Fairbanks and Homer. That means almost 80 percent of all Alaskans have access to 1 GIG speeds—a stark contrast to many rural communities in the Lower 48 that are still struggling with service comparable to a dial-up connection.

GCI customers in Ft. Greely will now have access to 1 GIG red Unlimited service, which is available for as low as $99 per month for residential customers who also subscribe to two Simply Unbeatable wireless lines. On its own, 1 GIG red Unlimited internet costs $174.99 per month.

GCI’s Simply Unbeatable plan offers unlimited wireless service, starting at $70 for one line, or two lines for $120.

Military members and their families are eligible for 10 percent off their mobile plan, plus 10 percent off accessories.
