Alaska Communications achieved the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) hat trick of being the first company in Alaska, the second in the United States and the third in the world to achieve certification and to offer certified Carrier Ethernet 2.0 (CE 2.0) services.

We are excited to offer that with Carrier Ethernet 2.0, demonstrating our commitment and leadership in bringing world-class networking capabilities to Alaska,” says Mike Todd, Alaska Communications senior vice president/Customer Operations.
