SaskTel has launched LTE cellular services in Fillmore with the deployment of a small cell site. This 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.
“SaskTel is continuously finding new solutions to deliver its services in rural areas and I’m extremely pleased with the installation of the new small site in Filmore,” Dan D’Autremont, MLA Cannington said. “Ensuring that residents in rural Saskatchewan are provided with world class communication services is something that our government remains committed to.
“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.”
