SaskTel to Improve Wireless Service in McTaggart

March 27, 2019

Today SaskTel announced the launch of a small cell site in McTaggart which will improve LTE cellular services in McTaggart and the 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.

“Our government understands the importance of having access to reliable communications services in rural communities and continues to work with SaskTel to find innovative solutions,” Dustin Duncan, Environment Minister and MLA for Weyburn-Big Muddy said. “With today’s launch of the small cellular site in McTaggart, residents will experience improved connectivity.”

“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.
