Internet Discounts For Students/Teachers

Mar 24, 2020

The University of Alaska system goes back to school today. Students have moved off campus for the most part and are expected to resume their classes online today (Monday). That could be a stumbling block for those in Alaska communities with poor or no internet service. But the University is getting help from some of Alaska’s largest internet providers.


Alaska Communications announced a plan Thursday to reduce debt by selling its wireless assets to General Communications Incorporated, or GCI, for $300 million. As KUAC’s Tim Ellis reports, company officials say its wireless customers won’t see any changes until early next year.
