GCI, Alaska’s original startup

Ron Duncan of GCI

Alaska born and raised. It’s more than a brand, it’s the story of GCI, Alaska’s original startup. In 1979, Ron Duncan and Bob Walp, working in a downtown Anchorage apartment, became Alaska’s original tech entrepreneurs, intent on bringing affordable telecommunications to Alaskans.

When others wouldn’t take the risk, GCI built a statewide network through some of Alaska’s most rugged terrain, serving 240 communities and reaching 97 percent of Alaskans. The company has received billions in investment.

GCI continues its mission to deliver service to places no other company would, or in many cases, ever could. Learn more at GCI.com.
