The long awaited entry of telecommunications carrier Verizon into the Alaska market is now happening.
The company announced it is about to light up its 4G LTE network in the more urban parts of the state and begins taking customers for data transmission Friday.
Verizon cellphone customers should notice an improvement quickly because up until now the company has been renting capacity from other carriers.
GCI and ACS have been preparing for Verizon’s competitive entry for some time. The company claims its 4G capacity will be much faster than what is now being offered, and is touting reliability, with generators located at its towers in case of power failures.
