GCI Buys Alaska Op

Publish date:

General Communication Inc. will buy Barrow Cable TV from Arctic Slope Regional Corp., AP reported.

The 950-subscriber deal was estimated at $1.6 million, but the price could be affected by a change in the number of customers, GCI spokesman David Morris told AP.

Both companies expect to close the deal this winter, Morris added.

GCI, Alaska's largest cable operator, has 134,258 subscribers, AP reported.
