The “FISH in AK” (Fiber Internet Service Homes in Alaska) project will deliver Fiber-To-The-Home (FTTH) for all residents and businesses in Cordova, Alaska. This project will also add a submarine fiber line from Cordova to Seward with branches to Johnstone Point and the Village of Chenega.
“FISH in AK’ consists of the following key elements
• Fiber-To-The-Home for residents and businesses in Cordova
• Critical middle-mile connectivity for Cordova and Chenega
This project is funded by a USDA ReConnect R3 grant of $21.4 million dollars and $7.5 million dollars in matching funds from Cordova Telecom Cooperative.
This project will take several years and is estimated to be complete by the fall of 2027.

Fiber optic cables are capable of delivering gigabit speeds and are more reliable than traditional copper cables.
Fiber is less susceptible to interference and can transmit data over long distances without the need for signal boosting.
Fiber optic cables are also more durable and have a longer lifespan than traditional copper cables which means that they require less maintenance and can save companies money in the long run.
