SaskTel has announced it has signed a deal to implement free Wi-Fi with the City of Martensville, located 8 kilometres north of Saskatoon.
Places such as the Martensville Athletic Pavilion will gain SaskTel’s selectWI-FI service, which will also be available at the North Ridge Community Centre, and the Sports Centre.
According to a SaskTel press release, the rollout of this free Wi-Fi at these three city facilities should be ready by the end of March.
“The City of Martensville is looking forward to introducing selectWI-FI to our residents in three of our facilities this year,” said Leah Bloomquist, Director of Corporate Services at the City of Martensville, in an issued statement to iPhone in Canada.
“Working with SaskTel to bring this free service to their wireless customers in Martensville has been a priority so that our residents and visitors can stay connected while enjoying our facilities. We thank SaskTel for the opportunity to share this great service here,” added Bloomquist.
SaskTel’s selectWI-FI hotspots offer unlimited Internet access at over 2,400 locations and 30 communities across Saskatchewan, with almost 20 local businesses in Martensville already supporting the service.
“We’re pleased to work with the City of Martensville to enhance the connectivity of their community,” said Doug Burnett, SaskTel President and CEO.
