GCI internet provides a variety of features that you can tailor to your needs. Learn more about your options on the GCI page.

With Fast, Faster, Fastest, and 1 Gig plans available, you can choose the plan that works best for you, and never be limited by buffering again.
GCI Internet is available in many of Alaska's remote areas so the Last Frontier is more connected than ever.
GCI offers several high-speed cable internet plans, featuring download speeds starting at up to 100 Mbps. Higher-tier plans include speeds up to 200 Mbps, up to 400 Mbps, and up to 1,000 Mbps, or 1 Gbps.
GCI’s fastest speeds are available through their 1 Gig red Unlimited plan, which features download speeds up to 1 Gbps (1,000 Mbps), and upload speeds up to 50 Mbps.
While GCI does not charge overages, it does reduce speeds after a certain data limit on some packages. The 1 Gig Red Unlimited does not have any speed reductions or data caps.
Many users find they receive the fastest, most reliable speeds when connected directly to the internet through an Ethernet cable. For an improved WiFi connection, we recommend rebooting your modem and router, and placing your router in an open location in your home where the signal can travel more freely. You may also find internet speed improvement by minimizing the number of devices utilizing the WiFi at any given time. Turning off devices that aren’t currently in use can help to free up additional bandwidth for active tasks.
GCI offers a 1 Gig red Unlimited plan with no data caps. Most GCI Internet plans have reduced speeds at a certain data usage level. These range from reduced speeds at 150 GB to 600 GB. If you would prefer to enjoy your Internet at its full speed capabilities, but have hit your monthly allowance, you can buy an optional additional usage bucket.
GCI is a popular Internet provider in Alaska. To see if GCI Internet is available where you live, enter your address at SmartMove.us or GCI.com.
