Connecting the Future with 5G
Our network is evolving with the future of 5G and will be able to support more devices, with faster speeds and less delays to enhance our customers' experience. 5G will provide a greater capacity, reliability, extremely fast response times, and ultra-low latency.
In 2022-2023, we're investing $110.6 million into wireless network enhancements, including $103.6 million for expanding 5G coverage.
5G is currently available in select locations. By the end of 2022, 5G will cover approximately 50% of Saskatchewan's population.
How fast will it go?
Depending on your wireless 5G device, 5G speeds could be as high as 1.2 Gbps, giving you optimal speeds for gaming, streaming, and more!
Samsung: Pure Innovation!
We've partnered with Samsung to transition our network to 5G and beyond! As the new Samsung equipment is rolled out, the network will be faster with more capacity and will allow us to offer new and exciting services to our customers.
The Samsung network will lay the foundation for future technological developments and the modernization of wireless communications in Saskatchewan.
Gaming and VR
5G will provide faster response times and lower latency, meaning you'll be able to have a high-quality gaming experience anywhere you are, right from your wireless device! 5G will make your VR experience seamless, changing the way you can see the world.
Traditional industries like agriculture are evolving with 5G. With the use of 5G sensors, farmers will be able to collect real-time information about fertilization, crops, and livestock. This will also save time and money by helping conserve energy.
5G will benefit the healthcare system by offering faster and more efficient ways to help the community. From remote diagnosis and operations, to important information right at your fingertips, to high-tech advancements in operating rooms, 5G will lead the future in healthcare.
We own and operate Saskatchewan's largest LTE network, which covers 99% of Saskatchewan's population. Our LTE network is part of a larger, nationwide network, giving you outstanding coverage in Canada. We are continuing to enhance out LTE network to address growing data demands.
LTE-Advanced is the next step in the evolution of our wireless network and a major enhancement of the LTE network, which provides greater stability and faster performance. With more advanced technology and improved architecture, you can get download speeds up to 2.5 times faster, depending on your location, signal, and device. See list of compatible LTE-A devices.
We're always working hard to make our LTE network even better! In 2021, we've invested $27.5 million into LTE enhancements and $7.5 million into the final phase of the Wireless Saskatchewan Initiative. See LTE network enhancements for a list of recently implemented and upcoming enhancements.
VoLTE (Voice over LTE)
VoLTE is the next generation of wireless calling and is available on the SaskTel LTE network in select locations. With VoLTE, you'll get high-definition voice calls, faster call connection times, improved battery life, and simultaneous use of voice and LTE data.
To use VoLTE, you'll need a compatible phone with a VoLTE-enabled operating system, LTE SIM card, and a wireless plan with voice and data (excludes noSTRINGS Prepaid). See Understanding VoLTE to learn more.
With Wi-Fi Calling, customers can call and message over a Wi-Fi connection when there is weak or no LTE coverage, such as in basements, stores, or tall buildings. See Wi-Fi Calling to learn more.
