SaskTel strengthens network by adding 12 more rural towers

Thursday 12 September 2019 | 10:22 CET | News

SaskTel said it plans to improve LTE mobile services in 12 additional communities throughout rural Saskatchewan by deploying a small cell site platform. Ten of these towers will be in-service by 31 March 2020 with the remaining 2 towers launching in June 2020. This will bring the total number of small cell sites constructed under the Government of Saskatchewan’s Wireless Saskatchewan initiative to 103 in rural locations across the province. 

The upgrades on the first 50 towers were completed by 31 March and SaskTel is now working on turning up the 41 towers (30 remaining) previously announced that will be in-service by 31 March 2020 and the 12 towers announced today.
