About Us
Headquartered in Anchorage, Alaska Communications today serves the fastest growing segment of users - data dependent consumers and enterprises - and leverages its legacy as a local telephone company to support its wireless and enterprise data network.

Alaska Communications participates in the consumer market primarily through its wireless data and voice product line. The company's network coverage extends from the North Slope to the Southeast panhandle, complemented by data and voice roaming partnerships in the Lower 48 and Canada, enabling us to offer nationwide plans identical to those offered by the biggest brands in the industry.

The company participates broadly in the enterprise market; specializing in serving data needs - whether wireless or fixed. Its fixed data services are delivered over a statewide Metro Ethernet and MPLS network; its data hosting centers; its submarine fiber networks connecting Alaska to the Lower 48; and through professionals who deliver managed services. The professional services product line was recently augmented through an investment in and partnership with a leading IT services in Alaska that, like Alaska Communications, also extends its services to the Lower 48.

Supporting two primary growth strategies is a long-standing practice of continuous process improvement which enables an optimal customer experience.
