Residents and businesses in these communities now have access to download speeds up to 25 Megabits per second (Mbps), the fastest SaskTel has ever offered in rural areas.
“Our government understands the importance of having access to fast and reliable internet speeds,” said Don Morgan, Minister Responsible for SaskTel. “I am pleased with the progress SaskTel has made in our rural communities to greatly enhance the internet service available to Saskatchewan residents.”
“Our interNET Extended 25 service provides rural customers more bandwidth than ever before,” said Doug Burnett, SaskTel President and CEO. “This upgraded service will allow better access to vital requirements for businesses to remain competitive and for residents to access important services.”
SaskTel interNET Extended 25 service comes with unlimited usage, in-home Wi-Fi, and 24/7 helpdesk support – all for one low monthly price.
These internet upgrades are part of SaskTel’s commitment to invest $301 million of capital in Saskatchewan in 2018/19 and over $1.4 billion through 2018-2023. These investments will ensure that all Saskatchewan residents will continue to receive some of the best communication and entertainment services in the world.
