SaskTel has begun rolling out its 5G wireless network in the City of Moose Jaw. Delivering ultra-fast data speeds and unparalleled connectivity, SaskTel’s 5G network continues to set a new standard for connectivity in Saskatchewan.

Launching in parts of Moose Jaw, SaskTel anticipates the majority of the city will have access to its 5G network by the end of March 2023.

“I’m extremely pleased with the tremendous progress SaskTel has made since first launching their 5G network last December,” said Don Morgan, Minister Responsible for SaskTel . “Today’s announcement is another significant milestone that further demonstrates SaskTel’s strong commitment to its customers and the people of Saskatchewan.”

“This is an exciting announcement for Moose Jaw residents and our business community,” said Clive Tolley, Mayor of Moose Jaw. “We’re actively promoting the benefits of living and working in Moose Jaw, and SaskTel’s new 5G network will allow even more people to get connected and Get A Life in Canada’s Most Notorious City.”

“At SaskTel, we recognize the true potential of 5G both now and into the future,” said Doug Burnett, SaskTel President and CEO. “As we continue working to expand our 5G network across the province, we look forward to realizing the many ways this new technology will help change how our customers connect with the world around them.”

Powered by Samsung, SaskTel’s 5G network can reach speeds of up to 1.2 Gigabits per second (Gbps) allowing customers to connect faster than ever before. Future benefits of the 5G network once fully deployed will include incredible capacity and ultra-low latency, enabling new use cases for wireless technology that will be the foundation that next-generation innovations will be built upon.

More than a network upgrade, SaskTel 5G will support more data-driven smart solutions for agriculture and other industries that will help to drive economic development and prosperity across the province.

The continued expansion of its 5G network is a direct result of SaskTel’s commitment to invest more than $1.5 billion of capital across Saskatchewan over the next five years. These investments will ensure Saskatchewan families and businesses continue to have access to some of the best communication and entertainment services available anywhere in the world.

In order to connect to its 5G network, SaskTel customers need to be within a 5G coverage area, have a 5G capable device that is certified for use on the SaskTel 5G network, and subscribe to a 5G compatible wireless plan.

SaskTel is the leading Information and Communications Technology (ICT) provider in Saskatchewan, with approximately $1.3 billion in annual revenue and over 1.4 million customer connections including more than 647,000 wireless accesses, 273,000 wireline network accesses, 293,000 internet and data accesses, 110,000 maxTV service subscribers, and 78,000 security monitoring customers.
