SaskTel to expand rural fibre rollout with additional CAD 80 million investment


SaskTel expand rural fibre rollout

With a further CAD 80 million investment, SaskTel's Rural Fibre Initiative will expand to 61 more communities in Saskatchewan, offering high-speed infiNET fiber service.

As part of its Rural Fiber Initiative, Canadian regional operator SaskTel announced that it will invest an extra CAD 80 million to expand its infiNET fiber service to 61 more villages in Saskatchewan. Saskatchewan Tel has recently announced that this investment will bring fiber optic broadband connectivity to more than 22,000 additional residences and commercial buildings.

The Rural Fibre Initiative, which was first unveiled in 2020, is a multi-phase program in which SaskTel will spend CAD 280 million to extend its infiNET network to almost 200 villages in the province. A fiber optic broadband network service called infiNET from SaskTel can provide internet speeds of up to one gigabit per second (Gbps).

SaskTel expressed their satisfaction at raising their investment in the Rural Fibre Initiative in order to provide more of their customers who reside and work in rural areas of the province with the unmatched speed and dependability of their infiNET network.

According to SaskTel, Phase 7 of the Rural Fibre Initiative aims to connect the towns and villages that stand to benefit from the remarkable infiNET service. Thanks to these substantial investments, by the year 2027, SaskTel envisages that every community involved in this initiative will be fully equipped with top-notch fiber technology, ensuring their readiness for the future.
