A solid stretch of west-central Saskatchewan road was included in the latest 5G expansion announcement from SaskTel.

It was announced last Friday that more rural communities would be receiving access to SaskTel 5G, and while no villages and towns in the immediate area were included, a stretch of Highway 4 south of Rosetown, and Highway 45 southwest of Outlook was mentioned as part of the announcement.

“At SaskTel, we’re firmly committed to being the best at connecting our customers to the world,” said Charlene Gavel, SaskTel President and CEO. “The continued rollout of our 5G network will strengthen the technological foundation of our province and help support the development of exciting innovations that have the power to transform nearly every aspect of modern life.”

A pair of smaller communities involved on the list were Fiske, and Denzil. A total of 30 locations were announced as part of the coming upgrades.
