SaskTel To Improve Wireless Service To Seven More Rural Saskatchewan Locations

Released on September 25, 2018

Today, SaskTel announced plans to improve 4G LTE cellular services in seven addition rural communities, bringing the total to 50, throughout Saskatchewan by deploying a small cell site solution.  The communities of Pennant, Carievale, Waseca, Val Marie, McTaggart, Macoun and Laird will see enhanced wireless services by March 31, 2019.

“Our government had a vision of providing reliable communications services to more rural areas in Saskatchewan and today’s announcement takes us one step closer,” Minister Responsible for SaskTel Don Morgan said.  “This most recent round of wireless upgrades from SaskTel will greatly benefit many residents, and businesses in small communities across Saskatchewan.”

“Delivering enhanced wireless services to rural Saskatchewan is a key focus for SaskTel and we are on track to complete these first 50 locations by the end of March 2019,” SaskTel Acting President and CEO Doug Burnett said.  “Our team has worked hard to deliver on this initiative and we’re pleased to be able to deliver world-class cellular services to more rural areas of the province.”

The remaining 50 communities in Phase 2 of the Government of Saskatchewan’s four-phase initiative to provide rural communities with enhanced access to reliable cellular and high speed internet services will be announced when details are finalized.
