August 16, 2010 by
Great news for residents of Saskatchewan, SaskTel has officially announced their new 3G+ network. The new network will deliver speeds up to 4x faster than the CDMA network, and will make simultaneous voice and data possible (no more ending a call to check a webpage or email!). When the network is complete, it will provide cellular access to 98% of Saskatchewan’s population.
