Alaska Communications

Alaska Communications agreed to supply low Earth orbit (LEO) satellite service through OneWeb to Bristol Bay Telephone Cooperative. LEO satellites deliver fiber-like connectivity performance to areas that are difficult and expensive to reach via terrestrial options. The cooperative will initially use this service to connect its offices and facilities. In the future, it plans to extend it to residents in the region and augment its voice and mobile data network. Announced in June, OneWeb and Alaska Communications are collaborating to deliver a fiber-like connectivity experience everywhere in Alaska. Through the agreement, Alaska Communications will sell OneWeb's LEO satellite service to its customers and use it for critical middle mile connections. LEO service for Bristol Bay Telephone will begin in November. Alaska Communications, an affiliate of ATN International, provides advanced broadband and managed IT services for businesses and consumers in Alaska.
