SaskTel to Improve Wireless Service in Pennant and Prelate

March 29, 2019

Today SaskTel announced the launch of small cell sites in Pennant and Prelate which will improve LTE cellular services in these areas. 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.

“Today SaskTel is launching towers in both Pennant and Prelate that will improve cellular connectivity,” Doug Steele, MLA Cypress Hills said. “I am proud to be part of a government that is committed to improving coverage for residents in rural communities and I am looking forward to seeing the benefits the rest of the four-phase initiative will bring.”

“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.”
