Internet access is quickly becoming a basic human right. Connected communities are better communities - better health, education, influence and economic opportunities. The FCC's Connected Nation Policy has made it possible for wireless service providers to extend the availability of 3G/4G mobile voice and broadband internet services in underserved rural communities throughout the US, including tribal lands. GCI has committed to providing 3G/4G mobile voice and broadband internet services to over 80 communities throughout rural Alaska and has partnered with Score Technologies Inc. to verify quality of service in these communities. By boat, ATV, snowmobile, helicopter and backpack, we are proud to support the peoples and tribes of rural Alaska, bringing connection and opportunity to the places that need it most!
