GCI waives fees for calls, texts to Florida, other areas in response to natural disasters
Calls and texts to impacted communities can be placed for free though Sept. 15


ANCHORAGE, Alaska – In response to natural disasters in Florida, Mexico and throughout much of the Caribbean, GCI will waive all fees associated with voice calls and texts to impacted areas through Sept. 15.

“As many communities deal with the devastating damage of Hurricane Irma, and others with the large earthquake in Mexico, GCI understands the importance of being able to keep in touch with loved ones during time of crisis,” said Paul Landes, senior vice president, Consumer Services. “GCI made this decision so our customers can check on family and friends in communities dealing with these natural disasters without concern for charges.”

GCI customers can make voice calls and texts to the following areas free of charge through Sept. 15:
Florida
Mexico
St. Martin
Barbuda
Bahamas
Turks and Caicos
Puerto Rico
U.S. Virgin Islands
British Virgin Islands
Dominican Republic
Haiti

Free service is for valid calls made from landlines as well as wireless devices. Customers are not required to take any action on their account before calling or texting family or friends in Florida, Mexico or the listed Caribbean communities.

Customers with questions can contact GCI customer service representatives at 907-265-5400 or 800-800-4800 and can visit www.gci.com or www.facebook.com/GCIAK/ for updates on this policy.
