infiNET arrives in Yorkton

The Fastest Network in Saskatchewan with Infinite Potential

The City of Yorkton is set to experience the next level in Internet speed as SaskTel unleashes the power of infiNET™, Saskatchewan’s fastest fibre optics network. Beginning July 6, 2017, infiNET will be available in select residential neighbourhoods and eventually city wide. With speeds of up to 260 megabits per second (Mbps), infiNET allows SaskTel to connect its customers to their world faster than ever before.

“We are very pleased that Yorkton is included in SaskTel’s fibre optic upgrade program for Saskatchewan cities,” said Bob Maloney, Mayor of Yorkton. “Residents and businesses are looking forward to the much faster network speeds that infiNET can provide.”

“infiNET’s arrival in Yorkton is another example of SaskTel’s commitment to providing the people of Saskatchewan with world class telecommunications services,” said Dustin Duncan, Minister Responsible for SaskTel. “With the increasing importance of the Internet in our lives, infiNET is one more tool that will allow the businesses and residents of Yorkton to continue thriving.”

“We are excited to bring infiNET service to Yorkton,” said Ron Styles, SaskTel President and CEO. “infiNET is the next stage in the delivery of High Speed Internet. It will allow home users to surf, stream, and use more devices than ever before; all at incredible speeds.”

Yorkton is the latest step in SaskTel’s ambitious $670 million Fibre-To-The-Premise program that will deploy fibre directly to homes and business by upgrading SaskTel’s broadband network across Saskatchewan’s nine largest cities. Beyond the immediate benefits of faster Internet speeds for consumers, this network enhancement will have added benefits down the road. As demands for more bandwidth and faster speeds increase, infiNET provides SaskTel with a flexible platform that can quickly grow to meet its customer’s needs.
