SaskTel has announced further plans to assist customers during the global COVID-19 pandemic by extending the waiving of data overage charges to April 30th, 2020.
There will be no data overage charges (domestic data) for business or consumer customers, on SaskTel’s postpaid Wireless plans, noSTRINGS Prepaid wireless plans or SaskTel fusion Internet plans from March 17th to April 30th, 2020. This is being done in response to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.
“As the COVID-19 outbreak continues, we are listening to our customer’s needs for additional data as more and more people self-isolate and work from home,” said Doug Burnett, SaskTel President and CEO. “As this situation evolves, SaskTel employees are working hard to maintain our world-class networks to ensure customers have the essential services they require to stay connected to their work, family and friends.”
SaskTel will also continue to provide free content to its residential maxTV and maxTV Stream customers, with current access to over 50 channels on free preview, including CTV News Channel, CBC News Network, LCN, Family, Family Jr., Family CHRGD, Disney Channel, Teletoon, Treehouse, and much more.
