SaskTel expands internet and entertainment services to four more communities

The communities include Burstall, Fox Valley, Richmound and Tuxford


SaskTel is launching its ‘interNET Extended 25 and 50’ and ‘maxTV Stream’ services to four more communities in Saskatchewan.

The communities include Burstall, Fox Valley, Richmound and Tuxford. With this latest expansion, the carrier now offers internet packages with download speeds of up to 50Mbps or faster in over 340 communities across the province.

“From communities with a handful of residents to our province’s major urban centres, we’re working hard to bring faster internet speeds and the next-generation in entertainment services to as many Saskatchewan residents as possible,” said SaskTel CEO Doug Burnett in a press release.

The carrier’s maxTV Stream IPTV platform is said to “combine the best of traditional television with advanced technology and the latest OTT content from Netflix and YouTube.”

It lets users watch live TV and VOD programming on their phone or tablet, and also allows users to control their TV through Bluetooth and voice command technology.

SaskTel notes that its continuous expansion of its services is a direct result of its commitment to invest over $1.6 billion through 2025 across the province.
