Alaska Communications Gets Spectrum in Support of Fixed Wireless Broadband Deployment

Alaska Communications (NASDAQ: ALSK), has secured spectrum through the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) auction for licenses in the shared Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) band, the company said.

The CBRS spectrum is used in fixed wireless applications. Fixed wireless delivers high-speed, reliable and secure broadband with speeds up to 250 Mbps.

CBRS spectrum works well in areas where customers are geographically spread out and with lower population densities, which is found throughout many Alaska communities. Due to the high speed associated with this spectrum, it is a preferred spectrum for fixed wireless.

Alaska Communications is the provider of advanced broadband and managed IT services for businesses and consumers in Alaska. The company operates a statewide data network with the latest technology and the most diverse undersea fiber optic system connecting Alaska to the contiguous US.
