GCI is upgrading two towers near Summit Lake and Cooper Mountain later this fall that are not accessible by road. Crews and approximately 10,000 pounds of equipment and materials will be delivered to the sites by helicopter. Though the areas served by this project target some of the state’s busiest stretches of highway, delivering connectivity still requires going off the beaten path.

The project involves more than 30 GCI technicians and engineers and includes upgrades at 43 sites throughout the Peninsula and the construction of two new towers that will bring expanded wireless and data coverage between Sterling and Soldotna as well as the Homer Spit. Greg Klimek, vice president, GCI Wireless Marketing: “Investing in the Kenai Peninsula has been a high priority for GCI and we are pleased that the project is in the final stretch. Upgrades to 43 sites across the peninsula means move coverage over a wider area and faster speeds and service for our customers.” Upgrades will bring LTE data coverage and improved voice service along additional sections of the Seward and Sterling Highways.
