Press Release

ANCHORAGE, Alaska–May 29, 2013–Alaska Communications (NASDAQ: ALSK) has expanded its hosted Voice over Internet service for businesses in Southcentral Alaska. The company launched Voice over Internet for small businesses late last year. It’s now expanding its Voice over Internet service to large businesses and multi-location enterprises in Southcentral Alaska.

Voice over Internet is a cloud-based phone system that allows businesses to access their enterprise phone system on any device any where they are connected. Because it is a cloud- based system, it provides better functionality and lower costs than traditional phone systems.

“Voice over Internet is the future of business communication. It will do for businesses what the smartphone did for consumers in terms of how they use their phone. Voice over Internet allows you to keep your data, staff and clients close at hand. You can connect your computer, smartphone, tablet and other devices anytime, when and where you want. It also offers customers simple manageability; it’s an intuitive phone system that doesn’t require a full-time staff to manage,” said Eric Lazo, Alaska Communications vice president of product and marketing.

Alaska Communications Voice over Internet includes business-class applications for mobile voice management and is supported by the only broadband data service in Alaska to receive the Carrier Ethernet 2.0 Certification from the Metro Ethernet Forum. By combining voice and data networks, businesses streamline operations, reduce operating costs and increase productivity.

  • Alaska Voice Mobile App for smartphone, tablet and PC
  • Customer web-portal administrator for do-it-yourself changes
  • Find Me Follow Me
  • Music on Hold
  • Premium Auto Attendant
