GCI’s vice president came to Tuesday night’s city council meeting to drum up support for their potential plan to bring fiber to Unalaska.
“I’m not here to talk about satellite today," said GCI's Dan Boyette. "I’m here to talk about satellite replacement today.”
Boyette said the company wants to bring faster service to Unalaska and a subsea fiber-optic cable may be the solution.
GCI is currently in the process of doing a marine survey. Boyette says they have already put in $2 million, but the entire project would end up costing $40 million.
