(SitNews) Ketchikan, Alaska - One year after bringing 4G LTE coverage to Ketchikan, GCI is expanding its coverage area by adding three new cell towers to the Ward Cove, Saw Mill and Cranberry Road areas, which now completes a 10-site cellular coverage area. The additional towers are expected to bring increased wireless speeds and faster download speeds to GCI customers in Alaska’s most southeastern city.

“At GCI, we’re dedicated to providing Alaskans with the best and fastest communication services available, and that’s why we continue to invest in network upgrades in Ketchikan and across the state,” said Paul Landes, GCI’s senior vice president general manager, consumer services. “With the 4G LTE expansion, our Ketchikan customers will experience faster wireless speeds for downloading, streaming multimedia and enjoying other online activities whether they are fishing off of Clover Pass or hiking around Ward Lake.”

With the faster 4G LTE speeds and improved coverage, GCI’s Ketchikan customers can expect improved coverage and overall wireless experience. The additional service towers allow customers more opportunities to connect on GCI’s wireless network, the largest in Alaska.
