SaskTel to Improve Wireless Service In Drake

Today SaskTel announced the launch of LTE cellular services in Drake with the deployment of a small cell site. 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.

“Our government is committed to ensuring that residents in Saskatchewan are provided with safe and secure communication services,” Donna Harpauer, MLA Humboldt- Watrous said. “As SaskTel continues to find innovative solutions for rural areas, I have no doubt the new tower will improve Drake’s services.”

“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.
