Saskatchewan’s fastest fibre optics network is coming to Humboldt

Construction on Sasktel's InfiNET will begin in the next couple weeks and is expected to be launched by the end of 2019.

“Council and I are very excited that SaskTel is bringing this upgrade to Humboldt,” said Humboldt Mayor, Rob Muench. “We live in an increasingly data-hungry culture that relies on bandwidth. Residents and businesses alike are looking for faster, more cost-effective, secure and reliable ways to share information and do business. Upgrading to a fibre optics backbone and connecting homes and offices is a very positive economic influence for our community and for those looking to relocate here.”

InfiNET will have speeds up to 300 Megabits per second (Mbps) download and 80 Mbps upload.

The InfiNET expansion project is part of SaskTel’s commitment to invest $1.4 billion across Saskatchewan through 2023.
