GCI believes in connecting with and making a lasting impact in the communities we serve.


GCI opened its doors for business in 1979 and has been serving Alaskans with long distance, TV, internet and wireless service ever since. But GCI is more than just Alaska's technology leader, we are a company founded and operated by Alaskans. We are committed to being a good neighbor and supporting our local communities. That's why GCI donates more than $2 million to Alaska organizations each year and provides more than 32,000 hours of paid volunteer time to our 2,200 employees statewide.
