SaskTel Select Wi-Fi is now the Largest Wi-Fi network in Saskatchewan
SaskTel today announced that in 2016 it expanded Select Wi-Fi to Canora, Esterhazy, Humboldt, Kamsack, Kindersley, Lloydminster, Melville, Nipawin, Rosetown, and Tisdale. SaskTel Select Wi-Fi provides SaskTel customers with free and unlimited internet access on over 4100 access points in over 1,700 locations spread across 23 communities in Saskatchewan, making it the largest Wi-Fi network available in the province.
“The SaskTel Select Wi-Fi Network is only available to SaskTel Wireless customers, not to those of our three competitors, Bell, Telus, or Rogers,” said Ron Styles, SaskTel President and CEO. “When paired with our wireless network, we clearly have a leg up on our competition considering that no other provider offers the coverage and free Wi-Fi data that we do. For both Saskatchewan companies and individuals, SaskTel Select Wi-Fi, provides an opportunity to reduce your wireless bills while improving your coverage.”
SaskTel Select Wi-Fi is also available at some of the most popular venues in the province including the SaskTel Centre in Saskatoon, the Art Hauser Centre in Prince Albert, Affinity Place in Estevan, Brandt Centre in Regina, and new Mosaic Stadium to name only a few locations.
Connecting to the SaskTel Select Wi-Fi network is simple. SaskTel wireless customers using a 4G or 4G LTE wireless device will automatically connect to the network when their device has WiFi enabled. Alternatively, for customers using a laptop or tablet that is not connected to the SaskTel cellular network, they can access Wi-Fi through their mySaskTel account.
