GCI Company Overview and History

GCI was founded more than 35 years ago to create Alaska's most advanced network, including the fastest Internet, cable, television, and telephone services in the region. That includes Anchorage, Palmer, Kodiak, Fairbanks, Wasilla, and many other places.

Bringing these services to remote communities that face challenging conditions has made GCI a pioneer in its field as it provides many crucial resources to the residents of these otherwise hard-to-reach places. GCI is home to approximately 2,200 employees.
