Today is a great day for Saskatchewan residents!
Today marks the official opening of SaskTel’s new 3G+ Wireless Network! Saskatchewan residents are now able to visit a SaskTel location and begin service with a 3G+ device.
Since this is the first day roll-out and the company has never had a 3G network in the past, the following 3G+ devices are available for sale from SaskTel:
- Nokia 7230
- Nokia 6350
- BlackBerry Bold 9700
- BlackBerry Pearl 9100
While not listed on their website, SaskTel is also supporting the following devices soon:
- Samsung Gravity 3
- Samsung Gravity Touch
- Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant
Now that the company is using SIM cards, support for the iPhone seems promising. SaskTel has not indicated any support for the iPhone yet, but that does not mean if you live in Saskatchewan you shouldn’t try to put a SaskTel SIM in your iPhone!
At this time, the following cities have coverage on the new 3G+ network:
- Regina, Saskatoon, Moose Jaw, Weyburn, Yorkton, Swift Current, Prince Albert, North Battleford, Buffalo Pound, White City, Melville, Dalmeny, Martensville, Warman, Hepburn, Waldheim and most of the connecting highways.
For areas that are not listed above, SaskTel has a 3G+ Rollout schedule posted on their website.
