SaskTel announced on Friday that it had completed CDMA2000 1xEV-DO Rev A upgrades to its wireless networks serving Moose Jaw, Caron, Pense, Melville, Benson, Smiley and Stoughton. Users covered by the new service can browse websites, send e-mail, download audio and video files or upload information up to 20 times faster than on the 1x system.
