GCI is committed to making its customers' lives easier and keeps Alaska up to date on the latest technology. If a customer wants a new phone, GCI 2 U is able to deliver a new device in as little as one hour. Once the order is placed, a GCI 2 U representative will arrive at the predetermined time and location in a well-marked GCI 2 U vehicle and deliver the wireless device. The driver will even help customers activate their new device and have mobile accessories available for purchase. Upon launch on June 8, GCI 2 U delivery service will be available daily from 9 a.m. 6 p.m. Customers can schedule a delivery. A GCI team member will help customers set up an appointment with a GCI 2 U representative, set a location to meet, leave a contact number and note any special instructions for delivery. The company plans to expand GCI 2 U service to offer an even larger array of services, including Internet and TV product delivery, which is not currently offered anywhere in the country.
