SaskTel Launches 4G LTE Network in Estevan, North Battleford [u]

SaskTel has announced this evening residents in Estevan now have access to their 4G LTE network, and can expect “data speeds approximately five times faster than the current 4G network”.

“Our LTE network has twice the coverage and is up to 33 per cent faster than any other LTE network in Saskatchewan”, said Ron Styles, President and CEO of SaskTel, “And we are the first company in Canada to offer LTE roaming across Canada.”

Estevan, the province’s eight largest city, has had its coverage map updated to reflect LTE, seen below in light orange:

Most recently, Swift Current was the last city to receive LTE, to go along with Moose Jaw, Weyburn, Prince Albert, Yorkton and North Battleford launches this summer. SaskTel currently offers a $65 per month plan which includes unlimited talk, text and data.

Let us know how those LTE speeds are!

Update: Looks like we missed the announcement North Battleford received LTE as well–sorry folks (thanks Michael!).
