SaskTel Brings 5G Connectivity to the City of Saskatoon

SaskTel has begun rolling out its 5G wireless network in the City of Saskatoon, setting a new standard for
connectivity in Saskatchewan’s largest urban centre.


SaskTel has also expanded its 5G network to 15 additional towers in the City of Regina, including the downtown business district. The carrier plans to expand its 5G network to cover the majority of Regina and Saskatoon by
the end of the year.

Powered by Samsung, SaskTel’s 5G network delivers hyper-fast data speeds of up to 1.2 Gbps allowing customers to connect faster than ever before.

“As a life-long resident of Saskatoon, I’m extremely pleased that SaskTel has begun to offer 5G service in the bridge city,” said Minister Responsible for SaskTel, Don Morgan. 

“We at the Saskatchewan Chamber understand how critical advanced communications technologies are to the overall success of businesses throughout the province and we are pleased that SaskTel is making the necessary investments needed to bring 5G connectivity to the province,” said Elissa Laliberte, Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce Acting CEO.

In order to connect to its 5G network, SaskTel customers will need to be within a 5G coverage area, have a 5G capable device that is certified for use on the SaskTel 5G network and subscribe to a 5G compatible wireless plan.
