Prince Albert in the pipeline for SaskTel FTTP programme

7 Jan 2014

Saskatchewan operator SaskTel has announced that its ‘infiNET’ direct fibre triple-play broadband network is coming next to the residential community of Prince Albert. Preliminary construction work has begun in Prince Albert, and customers can expect to have infiNET available to their homes starting in spring 2014, with fibre-optics projected to be deployed to all residential areas of the city within a year. infiNET is being deployed through SaskTel’s fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) programme, a CAD670 million (USD630 million) investment to deploy fibre-optics directly to homes and upgrade the broadband network in the nine largest urban centres in the province, Saskatoon, Regina, Moose Jaw, Weyburn, Estevan, Swift Current, Yorkton, North Battleford and Prince Albert.
