Southeast Alaska Gets Undersea Fiber Cable

GCI, the largest telecommunications company in Alaska, has begun laying a new undersea fiber cable in south eastern Alaska. For residents in Ketchikan, Wrangell, Petersburg, Angoon and Sitka this means high-speed connections for Internet, phone and video. These communities are currently served through microwave and satellite networks. The $33 million project will connect five more communities to the Alaska United West line that currently connects Alaska to the Lower 48. GCI expects the project to be complete by November.
