Access Communications brings faster internet speeds to communities across Saskatchewan

Regina, SK – Access Communications has completed the first phase of a province-wide upgrade to its network, now delivering internet download speeds as fast as 450 Mbps to customers in 25 communities across the province.

“By offering these new lightning fast internet speeds, we can do so much more,” said Mayor Sharon Del Frari, Town of Unity. “You can be online checking the Town of Unity site while your three children are working through their online learning. Thank you for the upgrade, Access Communications!

Using a phased approach, Access Communications will deliver download speeds of 450 Mbps to over 70 communities altogether by midyear. These network upgrades enable not only faster speeds – they also ensure more reliable service delivery, preparing homes for upcoming next-generation video products.

“If the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that we rely on access to quality internet service. The need for reliable highspeed connectivity has never been greater.” said Jim Deane, Chief Executive Officer, Access Communications. “We are committed to keeping Saskatchewan connected when it matters most. This investment in our advanced broadband network means a better experience for everyone working from home, learning virtually, accessing online lifeline solutions, and enjoying leading-edge streaming and gaming services.

The first phase of upgraded internet offerings included Biggar, Canora, Dalmeny, Delisle, Esterhazy, Foam Lake, Fort Qu’Appelle, Humboldt, Indian Head, Kamsack, Kindersley, La Ronge, Air Ronge, Lumsden, Maidstone, Maple Creek, Meadow Lake, Moosomin, Nipawin, Rosetown, Rosthern, Tisdale, Unity, Watrous, and Wynyard.
