Alaska GCI customers may face service outages

Posted: Tuesday, August 10, 2010

FAIRBANKS - Communications services may be interrupted to GCI customers in Alaska this week due to what the company called a "wayward satellite."

The outages will affect GCI customers and businesses across Alaska that send or receive services by satellite. Those include long-distance calling, Internet, private lines and networks.

But cable television will not be affected.

GCI said in a press release that a satellite which lost its propulsion system will be in close proximity to a satellite used by GCI, causing transmissions to be periodically interrupted from Wednesday through Saturday.
