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 Craven; SaskTel has also deployed High Speed Basic and Advanced Internet service in Alvena, and Riverhurst.

“SaskTel recognizes that rural Saskatchewan needs access to quality High Speed Internet service,” said Ron Styles, SaskTel President and CEO. “By providing these communities with this service, we are opening doors for entrepreneurs that want to live outside of our major centers but still need access to how business is done in the world today.”

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.
