GCI expands network to 10 more Arctic communities in 2016

GCI has begun expanding high-speed terrestrial broadband service to the Northwest Arctic Borough and Norton Sound, delivering services to 10 new communities in 2016, the company said.

GCI´s terrestrial for every rural region in Alaska (TERRA) network delivers low latency network connections and high-speed Internet access. These speed increases, supported by Ericsson technology, will improve the performance of online health, education and government services.

Ericsson is a communications technology and services provider, and has been a GCI business partner for 10 years, working to pioneer the delivery of telecommunications in the Arctic.
GCI´s TERRA project launched in 2010 and currently delivers broadband services to 72 communities and serves more than 43,000 residents in rural Alaska with high-speed data streaming.
