ANCHORAGE, ALASKA — GCI RED internet customers will now have more available data, up to one terabyte from 750 gigabytes, at no additional cost. Other GCI No Worries internet plans will receive an increase in data and speeds later this year. 

“GCI is excited to be the only company is Alaska offering 1 Gig speeds with a terabyte of data each month in communities all over the state - from Anchorage to Fairbanks to Juneau to Mat-Su,” said Paul Landes, GCI’s Senior Vice President General Manager, Consumer Services.  “GCI customers who pair our hyper-speed
RED internet service with the GCI terabyte data plan to their multiple devices will get massive amounts of data at lightning speeds.”

With one terabyte of data, GCI customers can stream 700 hours of HD video and play upwards of 12,000 hours of online video games every month—that’s 16 hours of online game time per day.

“In today’s connected society, people are demanding more and more access to data at incredibly fast speeds. GCI is proud to have a product that keeps our customers connected in ways people in Boston and LA can’t even receive,” said Landes. “As an Alaska born and raised company we are thrilled to release new products that allow people to live the connected lifestyle they desire, and live in this incredible place. Even better, we are able to provide these upgrades at no additional cost to our loyal customers.”

The increase in data comes on the heels of GCI’s recent 1 GIG
RED internet expansions. With 1 GIG now available in Anchorage, Fairbanks, the Mat-Su Borough and Juneau, GCI continues to provide the fastest internet speeds to more Alaskans than any other provider.

The upgraded internet plans were created based on GCI’s ongoing customer surveys and listening sessions. GCI’s commitment to Alaskans’ customer experience, allows the company to respond to the unique Alaska marketplace in a way unlike any other provider.
