GCI customers get a boost from LTE service in downtown Sitka

August 14, 2018

SITKA, Alaska – GCI customers in Sitka are enjoying new, lightning-fast LTE wireless service on Alaska’s largest wireless network. Recent upgrades to two GCI wireless sites in the downtown area mean faster service—even inside buildings—over a broader coverage area that extends from SeaMart to Jamestown Drive and includes the airport and downtown harbors.

“I’m pleased to report that GCI customers are enjoying the upgraded LTE service downtown particularly in the areas around Lake Street, Monastery Street and Arrowhead Street,” said Warren Russell, vice president, Southeast Regional Operations. “Sitka will see even more improvement in the coming months.”             

GCI is committed to growing its wireless footprint and improving service across Alaska. Since 2014, GCI has invested more than $180 million into its wireless network, serving over 240 communities. GCI has improved or expanded service in more than 25 communities, so far, in 2018 and will launch wireless service and internet upgrades in more Alaska communities in the coming months.
