SaskTel Offers Free Unlimited Wireless Data for the Holiday Season

SaskTel looks to be spreading some holiday cheer this season by offering unlimited wireless data for its customers.

On Monday, the company announced from December 17, 2020 to January 11, 2021, data overages will be waived for this period for consumer and business customers on SaskTel’s:

  • postpaid wireless data plans
  • noSTRINGS Prepaid wireless plan

SaskTel says customers on unlimited wireless plans will not be subject to throttled data speeds. SaskTel fusion Internet plans already come with unlimited data.

“As the province’s leading communications provider, SaskTel knows how important it is to stay connected. This is especially true this holiday season as we know it won’t look the same as previous years,” said Don Morgan, Minister Responsible for SaskTel, in an emailed statement to iPhone in Canada. 

“Waiving data overages is just one way SaskTel can help customers continue to create those special memories with loved ones near or far,” added Morgan.

SaskTel says maxTV and maxTV Stream customers will also be getting free extra news and entertainment channel previews as well.

“Take care of yourself this holiday season, make that phone call to a long-lost friend or schedule a virtual coffee break with your grandma. SaskTel cares about its customers and we truly thank them for making us their provider of choice,” said Doug Burnett, SaskTel President and CEO. “On behalf of everyone here at SaskTel, we’d like to wish you all a healthy and happy holiday season!”

This is definitely a nice gesture from SaskTel. Now let’s see if any incumbents will offer a similar freebie this holiday season…
