This will open northern Saskatchewan to a number of new SaskTel services and bring high-speed bandwidth to all of Cameco’s operating sites from La Ronge to Collins Bay. The Northern Fibre Expansion project consists of 566 km of new fibre placement by SaskTel and SaskPower through a larger fibre transfer agreement. The total communications cost of the project is valued at $29.6 million and Cameco has agreed to provide $8 million to SaskTel for the project.

High speed broadband is becoming a critical component of economic growth and business operations. Saskatchewan’s current telecommunications infrastructure in northeastern Saskatchewan needs to be enhanced to meet demand. This expansion of fibre into the north will create a foundation for future growth.

“Bringing fibre to the northeast will ensure that residents and businesses have access to world class communications infrastructure,” said Don McMorris, Minister responsible for SaskTel. “This is an example of how we can work together with the private sector to ensure the continued prosperity of Saskatchewan and build on the Saskatchewan advantage.”

“SaskTel realizes that high-speed broadband capacity has become a critical component of business operations in northeastern Saskatchewan and fibre is necessary to meet the expected demand,” said Ron Styles, SaskTel President and CEO. “This fibre build will open the northeast to a number of new SaskTel services including gigabit transport to mines and 5 Mbps service to residents resulting in substantial communications support for economic development.”

“SaskPower is committed to investing responsibly to ensure that our customers have the power they need now and into the future,” said SaskPower President and CEO Robert Watson. “This new transmission line will help to meet a growing demand for electricity in Saskatchewan’s far north and we are pleased that as part of this project, we will be able to partner with SaskTel to create efficiencies for our customers.” Fibre optic cables carry critical communications for control of the electricity network.

“This project is a good investment for Cameco,” said Tim Gitzel, Cameco’s CEO. “We’ll improve efficiency at our northern Saskatchewan locations. On a more personal level, we also think it will help retain good employees by making it easier for them to stay in touch with friends and family back home.”
