Alaska telcos rolling fiber

General Communications, Inc. (GCI), based in Anchorage, Alaska, announced a plan to invest $30 million to build a fiber network in Southeast Alaska. The project followed an earlier announcement by Alaska Communications Systems (ACS) that's going to running a lot of fiber, too.

Alaska residents will get a bevy of new bandwidth options and will be better connected to the lower 48--GCI already has two fiber routes southward, and ACS' project will focus on planting a marine cable to connect with the Pacific Northwest.
