SaskTel Wi-Fi Debuts at Victoria Park, LTE Capacity Increased 10x at Mosaic Stadium

Regional carriers continue to expand their free Wi-Fi services to more customers. SaskTel has announced Victoria Park in Regina now has Wi-Fi, to accommodate demand during festivals and other events. Also, Mosaic Stadium, home of the Saskatchewan Roughriders, has also had its 4G and 4G LTE capacity increased by over ten fold:

“We are excited to offer SaskTel customers and City of Regina visitors a high quality Wi-Fi service for all of the events and festivities that will be held in Victoria Park and Mosaic Stadium,” said Ron Styles, SaskTel President and CEO. “We have also enhanced our 4G and 4G LTE coverage to increase capacity by more than ten times to further improve our customer experience at Mosaic Stadium.”

SaskTel says Wi-Fi service within Mosaic Stadium and in Victoria Park will be complimentary for everyone for the month of November, but restricted to SaskTel customers in 2014. Those with small data buckets or Wi-Fi iPads, time to get connected when you’re in Victoria Park.

Yesterday, SaskTel announced it had received an extension from Industry Canada to continue operating its 43 existing Wireless Broadband Internet (WBBI) towers, to give customers more time to transition away from the legacy service, such as to the new High Speed Fusion fixed-wireless LTE-TDD service, which starts at $79.99 per month and offers download speeds of up to 5 Mbps.
