The company also announced for every new smartphone activated on TELUS by August 7, 2013, $25 will be donated to the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency (part of the company’s Phones for Good campaign), up to a maximum of $100,000.
SaskTel and TELUS entered a wireless network sharing agreement back in 2009 to deploy the HSPA network in Saskatchewan and upcoming LTE as well. Back in January, SaskTel launched their LTE network in Regina and Saskatoon and many asked whether TELUS would also launch LTE there as well. You now have your answer. Let us know how those LTE speeds are!
