Residents of four more First Nations will now be able to enjoy the benefits of SaskTel High Speed Internet service: Big Island Lake Cree Nation, Ocean Man First Nation, Red Pheasant First Nation and Yellow Quill First Nation. SaskTel has also expanded 4G wireless service to three First Nations: Ahtahkakoop First Nation, Big River First Nation and Fishing Lake First Nation.

This expansion is part of a previously announced initiative to provide High Speed Internet service and 4G coverage to 28 First Nations communities in Saskatchewan over the next two years. (See Backgrounder for a complete list of communities.)

"This innovative partnership will provide these 28 First Nations communities with access to Saskatchewan's most extensive communications network," said Ron Styles, SaskTel President and CEO. "We'd like to thank our partners, Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada, the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations (FSIN) and Saskatoon Tribal Council, for their contributions to this tremendous project."

"Our First Nations have been patiently waiting for the 4G network to come to their communities," said Chief Morley Watson of the FSIN. "The FSIN/SaskTel partnership has resulted in these 28 First Nations now having the opportunity to upgrade their systems. This project is another example of this tremendous partnership."

SaskTel High Speed Internet service is many times faster than dial-up, allows a simultaneous phone conversation on the same phone line, and includes unlimited time online. Local Authorized SaskTel Dealers have full coverage information and service details or visit sasktel.com/internet.

The 4G network provides increased bandwidth with download speeds approximately 4 times faster than existing speeds (up to 21 megabits per second). It is also compatible with approximately 80% of all networks across the world and international roaming customers will be able to use their SaskTel 4G device on 4G networks anywhere.
