SaskTel to Improve Wireless Service in Torquay

January 30, 2019

Today SaskTel announced the launch of LTE cellular services in Torquay 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 rural residents in Saskatchewan are provided with world class communication services,“ Highways Minister and Estevan MLA Lori Carr said. “SaskTel continues to find innovative solutions to deliver its services in rural areas and I’m extremely pleased that residents in my constituency will benefit from the improved coverage this new small site will deliver.”

“SaskTel continues to invest in its networks, so our customers get the service they expect and need.” Doug Burnett, SaskTel Acting 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.
