Alaskans Can Take Their Business or Home Phone Number Anywhere with New Voice Over Internet Service


Alaska residents and small business owners can take their local business or home phone number anywhere they travel thanks to Alaska Communications (ALSK) new voice solutions. AKVoice Business and AKVoice Home are modern voice services that run over any broadband internet connection. Customers in most areas can keep their Alaska phone number no matter where they connect.

“Customers value flexibility and simplicity,” said Alaska Communications Senior Director of Product Management Jim Gutcher. “This is true for individuals and families, as well as business owners. The mobility features of AKVoice set it apart from traditional land lines. Users can communicate on the go with the Alaska Voice app on their mobile device to make and receive telephone calls, check voicemail and send instant messages just as they would if they were in the office or on their PC.”

For Business

With AKVoice, small businesses get the latest technology to improve productivity, security and collaboration. AKVoice Express for single line phones and AKVoice Advanced with hosted PBX capabilities, both offer unlimited local and domestic long distance with advanced call handling and cloud features. AKVoice lets employees manage calls and customer communication from anywhere they decide to call their office.

“In Alaska, we’re used to weather conditions that sometimes impact our ability to safely drive to work,” said Gutcher. “AKVoice makes working from home a possibility. In the event of a power outage, calls automatically reroute, allowing businesses the continuity to stay in constant communication with employees and customers.”

For Home

With AKVoice Home, customers in most areas can keep their Alaska phone number no matter where they connect, whether at their home, their cabin or even while they’re on vacation. It can also close a gap for families, providing a home line for children to use until they are ready for their own cell phone. Offered at a flat monthly rate, AKVoice Home is a self-installed product, giving the customer added flexibility. Set up is as simple as plugging in an adapter and handset.

AKVoice demonstrates Alaska Communications’ commitment to offering both residential and business customers convenient and high-quality voice solutions.
