SaskTel continues to expand High Speed Internet access in rural SK

Today SaskTel announced that residents living in three rural Saskatchewan communities will now be able to enjoy the benefits of SaskTel High Speed Internet service. SaskTel has deployed High Speed Basic Internet in Good Spirit Lake and Madge Lake; SaskTel has also deployed High Speed Basic and Advanced Internet service in St. Benedict. 

“SaskTel recognizes that rural Saskatchewan needs access to High Speed Internet,” said Ron Styles, SaskTel President and CEO.  “The world is becoming increasingly connected and these expansions will benefit both private customers using the Internet for home entertainment and business customers working from their home community.”

High Speed Basic Internet offers download speeds of up to 5 Mbps (megabits per second).  High Speed Advanced Internet offers download speeds of up to 10 Mbps (megabits per second).  SaskTel High Speed Internet includes unlimited usage, free installation, spam and email virus filtering, and 24/7 helpdesk support – all for one low monthly price.
