REGINA, Saskatchewan -- SaskTel today announced it will invest $199 million in its Saskatchewan network in 2011 and approximately $670 million in a seven-year Next Generation Broadband Access Program (2011 - 2017). This program will deploy Fiber to the Premises (FTTP) and upgrade the broadband network in the nine largest urban centers in the province - Saskatoon, Regina, Moose Jaw, Weyburn, Estevan, Swift Current, Yorkton, North Battleford and Prince Albert.

"Saskatchewan continues to be a growing and dynamic place," said Bill Boyd, Minister Responsible for SaskTel. "The deployment of FTTP will create the bandwidth capacity to allow SaskTel to deploy exciting new next generation technologies to better serve the people of Saskatchewan."

"Since the beginning of 2008, we've invested approximately $800 million in our network," SaskTel President and CEO Ron Styles said. "Our ongoing network investment allows us to be the best at connecting people to their world by providing the best customer experience through our superior networks, exceptional service, advanced solutions and applications."
