SaskTel High Speed Internet now available in Katepwa

The resort community of Katepwa is set to experience the benefits of SaskTel DSL High Speed Internet. Beginning July 21st, SaskTel High Speed Basic and Advanced Internet service will be available in some subdivisions in the District of Katepwa, with all subdivisions expected to be Internet ready before the end of August, see the attached map and legend for full details.

This latest expansion was made possible by SaskTel’s Community Participation Program and the District of Katepwa. The Community Participation Program provides communities that do not meet SaskTel’s criteria for service expansion an opportunity to receive SaskTel services. Through the program, communities provide a portion of the funds required to cover the capital costs to bring SaskTel services to their residents. This program allows SaskTel to responsibly and sustainably expand services to areas of the province where it may not otherwise be economically feasible to do so.

“We are very pleased and excited to have SaskTel’s DSL High Speed Internet nearly ready to be up and running all throughout Katepwa. Many thanks to all those who worked to make this a reality, and to all those who signed up. Thanks also to SaskTel for this tremendous opportunity,” said Don Jewitt, Mayor of the District of Katepwa.

“Today’s announcement further demonstrates SaskTel’s commitment to bring fast and reliable communication services to all corners of our province and I applaud the people of Katepwa for taking a proactive approach to work with SaskTel to bring Internet service to their community,” said Dustin Duncan, Minister Responsible for SaskTel.

“With access to our High Speed Internet service, the people of Katepwa will be able to stay connected with their busy lives while they enjoy all the beauty and fun that Katepwa has to offer,” said Doug Burnett, SaskTel Acting President and CEO.

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