GCI opened its doors for business in 1979 and has been serving Alaskans with long distance, TV, internet and wireless service ever since. But GCI is more than just Alaska’s technology leader, it is a company founded and operated by Alaskans. Committing to being a good neighbor and supporting our local communities.
