For those sites we need to make sure that they’re connected with some sort of fiber optic connection to carry all the traffic. So we’re continuing to deploy LTE, not just in the Kenai Peninsula but also Anchorage, Fairbanks and Juneau to make the coverage area bigger.” This transition followed the sale of ACS’ wireless customers to GCI which was finalized in February. GCI’s David Morris said since the transition they are looking forward to providing more coverage by constructing more cell towers and increasing LTE coverage.
