ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- In a continuing effort to provide the best wireless service for Alaska residents and visitors, ACS announced today that they have rolled out next generation CDMA/1xRTT service in Whittier. ACS' new cellular services will cover Whittier proper, the boat docks, and extend into the bay area. With this new CDMA service, users will experience a clearer voice quality on handsets, data speeds of up to 144 kbps and overall better service coverage.

Residents and visitors to Whittier can now enjoy the convenience of high quality wireless connectivity. Through ACS' CDMA network, voice and data connectivity can be possible even as one enjoys the small boat harbor, the spectacular vistas and the fishing opportunities.

The City of Whittier is located in Prince William Sound, a fjord at the head of Passage Canal, 65 miles southeast of Anchorage. The Whittier Small Boat Harbor is considered to be the "Gateway to Prince William Sound." The harbor is an ice-free port and operates year round. There are 350 slips for both transient and permanent berth holders, to lengths of 54'. So as you can imagine, Whittier attracts many visitors in addition to the base population.

ACS' commitment to Alaska is clear. We are deploying technology, facilities and services to improve telecommunications statewide. The CDMA deployment in Whittier is just one more example of ACS' commitment to providing the best service to Alaskans.
