In a blog post released today, SaskTel announced that it has launched its Fibre Optic Network, called infiNET, in several residential areas in Weyburn.
In the completed areas, SaskTel will begin to rollout the upgraded network for SaskTel high speed Internet and maxTV customers. New customers will also have the option of signing up for infiNET once their neighbourhood is converted to fibre.
In a statement, the Minister Responsible for SaskTel Jim Reiter:
“SaskTel is proud to be the only provider in Saskatchewan that offers a direct to home fibre connection. Today with infiNET our customers will be able to download HD movies and music, enjoy uninterrupted streaming, and transfer files faster than ever before. Plus in the future with infiNET we will be able to significantly increase speeds over time without the need to replace the fibre which will allow for even faster connections.”
SaskTel invested $670 million to reply fibre optic technology in the nine largest cities in Saskatchewan, including Saskatoon, Regina, Moose Jaw, Weyburn, Estevan, Swift Current, Yorkton, North Battleford and Prince Albert.
