GCI Announces the Launch of Terra Service in the Northwest Arctic Borough

GCI announced the launch of TERRA service in the Northwest Arctic Borough. TERRA is delivering terrestrial broadband service to Kotzebue, 33 miles north of the Arctic Circle. This service will dramatically improve online health, education and government services as well as the broadband data experience for residential and business users. With the launch of TERRA, GCI has also rolled out 3G mobile wireless services for the residents of Kotzebue. Using video conferencing, communities like Kotzebue have access to specialty doctors and educators that are not readily available in the community. The lower latency enables significantly fewer delays in transferring data, allowing for better real-time communication. The launch of 3G wireless service will allow for substantially higher mobile data speeds, providing customers faster web browsing, audio and video streaming, and more. The launch of 3G services will occur in Nome and Unalakleet later this year.
