SaskTel to Improve Wireless Service in Clearwater River Dene Nation

January 13, 2020

Today SaskTel announced the launch of a small cell site in Clearwater River Dene Nation (La Loche) which will improve LTE cellular services in the community and its surrounding area. The new cell site is part the Government of Saskatchewan’s Wireless Saskatchewan initiative to provide rural communities with enhanced access to reliable cellular and high speed internet services.

“Our government remains committed to finding ways to help residents across the province stay better connected,” Minister Responsible for SaskTel Don Morgan said. “I am pleased that this new tower will help improve access to high speed internet and cellular services in Clearwater River Dene Nation.”

“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.”
