MTS and SaskTel Partner to Bring 4G Roaming to Praries

Posted by Stephen Christensen

Manitoba Telecom Services has partnered up with their neighbours to the west, SaskTel, in order to provide their customers  with better 4G HSPA+ roaming in Saskatchewan.

While MTS customers already enjoy roaming in larger Saskatchewanian cities, SaskTel’s 98% population coverage will be a huge benefit to those travelling rurally. SaskTel is a Crown corporation, and therefore has a duty to provide service to as much of its population as possible, without considering profit.

In a recent announcement, Kelvin Shepherd, the president of MTS, said that "our new agreement with SaskTel significantly increases the 4G HSPA+ roaming coverage for MTS customers travelling or doing business in Saskatchewan."

"In addition to coverage previously available to MTS customers in many Saskatchewan locations, we're proud that our 4G HSPA+ roaming now extends throughout rural Saskatchewan," Kelvin added. "Our strong relationship with SaskTel gives MTS customers access to the widest wireless network in Saskatchewan - just in time for the holiday season."
