SaskTel Launches High Speed Internet in Kendal

The village of Kendal is the latest rural community set to experience the benefits of SaskTel High Speed Internet. Starting today, SaskTel High Speed interNET Extended 5 and interNET Extended 10 are available in Kendal.

“This is exciting news for Kendal. Most people take for granted being able to bank, stream movies, and do research online, but for our residents that has been a luxury,” said Lea Zohner, Mayor of Kendal. “Having a reliable Internet connection will greatly benefit everyone in our community, especially our young people who will now have the same online learning opportunities as other children. In addition, having High Speed Internet may also help us to attract newcomers to our community.”

“Today’s announcement marks another step forward in our government’s plan to ensure that all residents of Saskatchewan have access to the technology they require to be successful in the modern world.” said Joe Hargrave, Minister Responsible for SaskTel.

“The expansion of High Speed Internet to Kendal is yet another example of our commitment to provide the people of Saskatchewan with world class technology and services,” said Doug Burnett, SaskTel Acting President and CEO. “We understand the integral role that the Internet plays in modern society and we take pride in knowing that our efforts will help to open opportunities for Kendal residents.”

This expansion is part of SaskTel’s commitment to invest over $300 million in capital in Saskatchewan in 2017/18 and $1.4 billion through 2016-2021. These investments will ensure that all Saskatchewan residents will continue to receive some of the best communication and entertainment services in the world.

High Speed interNET Extended 5 offers download speeds of up to 5 megabits per second (Mbps) while High Speed interNET Extended 10 offers download speeds of up to 10 Mbps. Both 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.
