SaskTel to Improve Wireless Service in Jansen

August 26, 2019

Today SaskTel announced the launch of a small cell site in the Village of Jansen which will improve LTE cellular services in the community and surrounding area. The new cell site is part of Phase 2 of the Government of Saskatchewan’s multi-phase initiative to provide rural communities with enhanced access to reliable cellular and high speed internet services.

“It is great to see the community of Jansen was selected to receive a new cellular site as part of the government’s initiative to improve access to communication services in rural communities.” MLA Greg Brkich, MLA for Arm River said. “We are all very pleased with this improvement and are eager to see how it affects our daily lives.”

“SaskTel continues to invest in its networks, so our customers get the service they expect and need.” Doug Burnett, SaskTel President and CEO said. “With Saskatchewan’s largest LTE network, SaskTel customers can surf, stream, and download the content they want faster than ever before and from almost anywhere in the province.”

See the December 2017 news release for more information on the Government of Saskatchewan’s full announcement outlining the four-phase initiative.
