SaskTel has increased the maximum download speed in those communities from 1.5 megabits per second (Mbps) to 5 Mbps. Customers began receiving the higher speeds automatically and High Speed Internet charges will not increase as a result of this upgrade.

The affected communities are: Frontier, Grenfell, Gull Lake, Kipling, Langenburg, Milestone, Pense, Regina Beach, Sedley, Strasbourg and Vibank.

This upgrade is part of a larger initiative to upgrade 210 High Speed Internet Basic communities from 1.5 Mbps to 5 Mbps by the end of 2010. SaskTel will make announcements regarding additional upgrade locations as they are completed. (Please refer to the list of 2010 upgrade communities).

“SaskTel continues to add value for Saskatchewan residents with capital investments and service improvements,” said Don Morgan, Minister Responsible for SaskTel. “Customers in these communities can expect an enhanced internet experience as a result of this upgrade.”

“SaskTel offers high speed Internet service to approximately 99 percent of the Saskatchewan population,” said Robert Watson, SaskTel President and CEO. “Now we’re pleased to offer improved service in rural communities across the province to give our customers even better High Speed Internet access.”
