fiber optic internet

The State of Alaska and local communities like Valdez and Juneau are investing in Fiber Optic Internet to create the foundation to develop further innovative technologies. . Being connected allows tech workers to work remotely from their desired location.

In order to build momentum on the Fiber Optic Internet installation ten miles from downtown Valdez at the Geeks in the Woods property, the Brown twins devised a plan to bootstrap the endeavor. With the help of friends and fellow software engineers, they installed a tower capable of recieving point-to-point gigabyte service from a location in downtown Valdez. After further collaboration with local community and business leaders, the bootstrap plan was deemed unnecessary.

With the support from Copper Valley Telecom, the Geeks in the Woods property in Valdez now boasts functioning fiber optic internet. This prestigious level of internet connectivity enables multiple software engineers and creative professionals to work remotely, effectively.
