ANCHORAGE, Alaska--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 6, 2020--Alaska Communications Systems Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALSK) today reported financial results for the first quarter of 2020.

“We are pleased with our first quarter 2020 results: Broadband revenues increased 7.2% year over year, and growth revenues continued to outpace declining legacy revenues.

In today’s environment, our customers are negotiating increasing amounts of remote work and our solutions are even more critical.
