Telecommunications company GCI says Mountain Village, St. Mary’s, Tununak and Quinhagak will have their cell services upgraded to 3G. This means residents in those communities will be able to take advantage of faster video, audio, internet browsing, talk and text within the next month.

GCI has been making upgrades to their network through expanding their TERRA network to bring faster data to more rural communities and improving cell services in dozens of communities in the state.
