GCI: Watch TV All Over Alaska


GCI Gives You Quality Entertainment

Using a fiber optic and satellite network, GCI connects your household to TV entertainment. Because GCI was the first to bring cable TV to Alaska, close to 90% of Alaskan households have signed up with GCI. GCI’s main initiatives include converting old networks to fiber optics, offering custom contract signing, and running an academic decathlon for local high schools.
