Alaska Communications Launches 4G LTE Wireless Network

Alaska Communications (NASDAQ:ALSK) has introduced 4G LTE wireless service to customers throughout Alaska, bringing customers the fastest statewide wireless data speeds. Alaska Communications’ 4G LTE network will provide speeds up to 10 times faster than current 3G wireless networks in the state and up to twice as fast as other 4G networks.

Alaska Communications has 4G service in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Juneau, Homer, Kenai, Palmer, Seward, Soldotna, Wasilla and Whittier.

“We’ve seen the demand for mobile broadband grow dramatically. 4G LTE is the latest generation of mobile wireless technology and will give customers what they want, faster mobile Internet on some of the latest devices,” said Mike Todd, Alaska Communications senior vice president of technology services.

“Alaska Communications’ 4G LTE changes the way Alaskans use their wireless devices at home, at work and everywhere in between. Customers will be able to watch HD video on their phone, email files for business in seconds and use real-time video applications like Skype™ without stalling,” said Todd.

Alaska Communications will launch its 4G LTE network with three 4G LTE smartphones, the popular HTC OneX, Samsung Galaxy S III and Samsung Galaxy Note. The HTC OneX will retail for $199.99, Galaxy S III for $199.99 and Galaxy Note for $179.99, each with a two-year service agreement. Alaska Communications will also offer the Bandrich 4G LTE mobile broadband router, providing high-speed Internet, for $99.99 with a two-year service agreement.

Alaska Communications has invested more than $500 million building Alaska’s most advanced wireless and wireline broadband data network over the last decade.
