LTE Network Improvements

Last Updated: April 15th, 2020

SaskTel is working to deliver the LTE experience you expect, and many ongoing improvements have already been made to our world-class LTE network. With the engineering improvements SaskTel has completed over the past several months, such as cellular site additions, high capacity equipment installations, software upgrades, network optimization, and adding radio spectrum, we have provided an approximate 50% overall performance improvement for our customers. Call drops have been reduced to under 1%, with call completions at 98%. While technology will never be 100% reliable, SaskTel continues to work on improving our network.
