SaskTel announced today plans to improve 4G LTE cell service to seven rural communities including Carievale and Macoun. The initiative comes by deploying a small cell site solution and will bring the total to 50 rural communities throughout the province.
“Our government had a vision of providing reliable communications services to more rural areas in Saskatchewan and today’s announcement takes us one step closer,” Minister Responsible for SaskTel Don Morgan said. “This most recent round of wireless upgrades from SaskTel will greatly benefit many residents, and businesses in small communities across Saskatchewan.”
“Delivering enhanced wireless services to rural Saskatchewan is a key focus for SaskTel and we are on track to complete these first 50 locations by the end of March 2019,” SaskTel Acting President and CEO Doug Burnett said. “Our team has worked hard to deliver on this initiative and we’re pleased to be able to deliver world-class cellular services to more rural areas of the province.”
The government plans to release the remaining 50 communities of the four-stage initiative at a later date, once details have been finalized.
