Alaska Fiber Optic (AFO) announced it will begin serving its customers in the Anchorage area.
The company’s news release said it would be open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday through Friday, and that customers will be able to order an AT&T-branded device from the store.
AFO said the first customers will get their device within two weeks.
“Today we’re launching AFO’s first AT&E service in Anchorage, the first of its kind in Alaska, where we’ve been serving customers since 2015,” AFO CEO Mike Langer said in a statement.
“Our service is the first in the nation, and it will be a boon to the region, as we are the first fiber optic company to begin delivering service to Anchorage.
This is an exciting day for the industry.”
AFO, which began in 2005, currently serves a total of 1.6 million customers in Alaska.
AFG, which is a subsidiary of Aftonbladet, operates a network of fiber optic cables and is one of the world’s leading providers of fiber broadband service.
AFL will also be providing additional service for its customers.
“AT&T and AFO are extremely excited to partner on this groundbreaking collaboration,” Aftorbladets CEO Peter Jonsson said in the statement.
AFOG, which was founded in 1884, currently offers a total service of approximately 20 million customers.
AFo is also one of three companies that have formed a partnership with the AT&G network operator, providing broadband to Alaska’s approximately 300,000 customers.
