ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- April 21, 2014

Businesses and consumers looking for faster Internet speeds have new options,
according to Alaska Communications (NASDAQ:ALSK). Speeds of up to 1 Gigabit
are available to businesses in Anchorage because of fiber optic improvements
the company has been making. Consumers in certain areas will also soon be able
to get speeds up to 50 Mbps.

“For the past 18 months we’ve been investing in a very large fiber optic
network project to bring faster connectivity to our customers. These new
speeds are a result of that work,” explained Anand Vadapalli, Alaska
Communications president and CEO. “Alaskans are asking for both faster data
and higher reliability without having to pay overage charges, and we’ve
responded with this large investment.”

The faster, more reliable broadband service allows businesses and consumers to
access what they need, when they need it.

Alaska Communications charges a flat monthly rate for unlimited data, with no
overage charges; installation fees may apply. Packages for businesses are
available with options like IT managed services and Voice over Internet,
depending on an individual business need. To learn more about Alaska
