Attention residents and tourists of Saskatoon, Regina, Moose Jaw, Swift Current, North Battleford, Prince Albert, Lloydminster, Yorkton. Weyburn and Estevan… TELUS has switched on the 3G+ network and you can upgrade your device. As you can tell by this coverage map the complete HSPA+ rollout is not finished and other areas are planned to be available by the Winter of 2011.
Thinking prepaid? From the internal document we received it states that “A separate communication will be provided when prepaid activations are available in Sasktachewan. Prepaid 3G+ clients from other areas in Canada traveling to Saskachewan will continue to enjoy voice and text services.” Last week ago SaskTel launched their 3G+ network and with this news we can also expect Bell and Virgin to follow shortly.
Update: Telus has a 30 Days Risk Free promo going on now until November 9th. For any new or renewing Saskatchewan clients who activate a 3G+ device you can try it out and can cancel within 30 days and not be charged a cancellation fee.
