High-speed internet brings change in Alaska

In this undated photo provided by Quintillion, a worker doles out cable from a large spool on a ship as a subsea cable is laid in the waters off the coast off Alaska. In October, 2017, ship crews finished installing the last Alaska segment of the subsea cable system between Nome and Prudhoe Bay, and the network became available Dec. 1, 2017, to telecom providers. The new, faster link by Anchorage-based wholesaler Quintillion is Alaska's piece of a planned international fiber-optic system that would eventually connect London and Tokyo via the Arctic.
