One of Alaska’s biggest telecommunications companies is getting smaller. Another is getting a bit larger.
On Thursday, Alaska Communications Systems (ACS) announced it will sell its cellphone operations to General Communication Inc. (GCI) in a deal worth $300 million.
The deal is not expected be final until early 2015, and until then, ACS cellphone customers will not see any changes, said spokeswoman Hannah Blankenship. “Until our wireless customers get notice that they are becoming a GCI customer, it is business as usual,” she said.
