SaskTel and Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation community of Southend today announced that SaskTel will build a 4G cellular tower at Southend as a result of financial contributions from several corporations and community organizations in the area.

This partnership is based on SaskTel’s Community Participation Model, which allows communities to raise funds to cover the shortfall when it is not economically feasible for SaskTel to finance a new cellular site alone. SaskTel anticipates that the new tower will be in place in early 2013.

“SaskTel is aware of the high demand among rural and remote communities for wireless service,” said Ron Styles, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our Community Participation Model makes it possible for smaller communities to join together and partner with us so they can have access to our world-class wireless network.”

“This project represents a major improvement of local services, said Chief Darrell McCallum. “This will enable the community to become more efficient, sustainable and competitive from an educational, health, governmental, and a business perspective.”

“Southend is proud of this new project,” said Southend Band Councillor Darrin Morin. “Through this upgrade, not only residents of Southend, but visitors will enjoy the benefits of the technology. I would like to extend my gratitude for those that have been involved in assisting our community in acquiring this technology, and to our financial contributors for this important project.”

SaskTel’s economic analysis for Southend, which took into account the overall cost of the tower site ($1.3 million), operating expenses over the first five years, and the anticipated revenues, resulted in a shortfall of $209,000.

Cameco provided $100,000 in funding. The other partners that provided funds as part of the Southend community partnership were:

AREVA
Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation Child and Family Services
Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation Health Services
Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation Education
Northern Settlement of Southend
Nordic Lodge

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 wireless networks around the world.
