Alaska Communications is building LTE network in Alaska. The company expects to turn up its 4G LTE network in a phased manner, and over the upcoming months will share more information on specific market launches of the service.

The company previously announced its plans to invest $12 million in building the necessary backhaul infrastructure for 4G LTE. With this announcement, the company intends to invest an additional $20 million, for a total investment of $32 million to provide 4G LTE services consistent with its current coverage footprint. The company intends to fund the investment largely via cash from operations and existing cash reserves.

“4G LTE is the wireless standard of the future, and our build plans represent the same commitment to performance, quality and reliability for which we have long been recognized. Customers can expect a faster and more personal experience with their mobile devices on Alaska Communications’ 4G LTE network,” said Mike Todd, Alaska Communications senior vice president of technology services.
