SaskTel Improving Wireless Service in 43 Rural Saskatchewan Locations

July 4, 2018

SaskTel today announced plans to improve 4G LTE cellular services in 43 rural communities throughout rural Saskatchewan by deploying a small cell site solution.

Today’s announcement includes the first 43 locations of Phase 2 of the Government of Saskatchewan’s December 2017 announcement of a four-phase initiative to provide rural communities with enhanced access to reliable cellular and high speed internet services. The upgrades on the first 43 towers will be completed by March 31, 2019 and the remaining 57 locations for Phase 2 will be announced when details are finalized.

“Our government understands that having access to fast and reliable communications services are vital in today’s digital world,” said Don Morgan, Minister Responsible for SaskTel.  “This most recent round of wireless upgrades from SaskTel will greatly benefit many residents, farms, and businesses who call rural Saskatchewan home.”

“Today’s announcement further demonstrates our commitment to deliver world-class communications services to our customers throughout the province,” said Doug Burnett, SaskTel Acting President and CEO. “These upgrades will help bolster our network and add capacity to address the ever-growing demand for wireless data.”

See the table below for a full list of towers to be upgraded. See the December 2017 news release for more information on the Government of Saskatchewan’s full announcement outlining the four-phase initiative.
