We have always believed in Alaska, and Alaskans. That’s why we invest in both, committing our own capital and resources in order to create a better, more connected place to live and thrive. This Alaskans-first spirit is how we prevailed in building the state’s largest network, in spite of the challenging landscape and climate conditions.
For more than 40 years, GCI has continually pushed Alaska’s communication technology forward. Inspired by local businesses, mission-driven organizations, and communities, we have invested more than $4 billion in private capital to bring connectivity to people and places in Alaska that no other telecom would go. Today, 97% of Alaskans live within GCI’s network. We are proud to be Alaska born and raised and to improve the lives of those who live here, through our commitment to innovation and quality.
The nation's northernmost 5G experience. Throughout summer of 2020, GCI wireless customers experienced major upgrades in Anchorage as we ramped up 5G. Since launch, wireless customers from Girdwood to the Mat-Su Valley have benefited from faster data speeds, improved coverage, and better voice quality — even in office buildings and convention centers.
84 Alaska communities connected. This example of next-generation connectivity is a 3,300-mile hybrid fiber-optic and microwave network, serving more than 45,000 people off the road system. Creating TERRA (Terrestrial for Every Rural Region in Alaska) was a monumental logistical and environmental feat, connecting health corporations, school districts, Alaska Native organizations, and other vital entities in rural Alaska.
For more than 40 years, GCI has partnered with organizations small and large, to pursue their goals and overcome technological barriers to success. Get in touch to learn about the ways we can help your organization meet its objectives.
