SaskTel today announced it has completed another 22 different 4G wireless network infrastructure enhancement projects across the province in December to address the ever-growing customer demand for network coverage and capacity.

“SaskTel has a long record in pursuing innovative and cutting edge solutions when it comes to expanding our 4G network across the Province,” said Don McMorris, Minister Responsible for SaskTel. “We are committed to building and powering the largest, fastest and most complete wireless network in the Province.”

SaskTel is using a variety of infrastructure options to enhance wireless service based on usage patterns and demands. In addition to traditional towers being constructed across the province, SaskTel is also increasing capacity and coverage by deploying other options when traditional towers are not feasible due to space or other limitations. These include installing carrier antennas to increase coverage strength inside of buildings, streetlights, rooftops, wooden and stealth poles, as well as installing new cellular sites such as towers or COWS (cellular on wheels) in various locations.

The communities that received 4G network enhancements in December 2013, including the type of enhancement completed are as follows:

• Regina: Added 4 carriers and 4G LTE coverage within the streetlights at the intersections of Dewdney and Southam Street and Sherwood Drive and Warwick Drive, and added 4G LTE coverage to the streetlight located on the east side of the Normanview Mall and within the building at Innovation Place, which will increase coverage and capacity for 4G and 4G LTE.
• Saskatoon: Added 4G LTE coverage within the buildings at Saskatoon Midtown Plaza, Saskatoon TCU Place, and 140 1st Avenue North, as well as added 4 carriers and 4G LTE within the streetlight located on the north side of the Circle Park Mall which will increase coverage and capacity for 4G and 4G LTE.
• Swift Current: Installed a Micro Cell site at the Pioneer Co op which will increase 4G coverage and capacity.
• Sandy Beach Regional Park: Installed and turned up into service a new stealth pole to increase 4G coverage and capacity.
• Patuanak: Installed and turned up into service a new tower to increase 4G coverage and capacity.
• K&S Mine and K&S Legacy Mine: Installed and turned up into service a new tower to increase 4G and 4G LTE coverage and capacity.
• Ile-a-la-Crosse: Added an additional carrier to the existing tower to increase 4G coverage and capacity.
• Buffalo Narrows: Added 2 additional carriers to the existing tower to increase 4G coverage and capacity.
• Beauval: Added 2 additional carriers to the existing tower to increase 4G coverage and capacity.
• La Loche: Added 2 additional carriers to the existing tower to increase 4G coverage and capacity.
• La Ronge: Installed and turned up into service a new stealth pole to increase 4G coverage and capacity at the La Ronge Airport.
• Blumenhof - SPC Wind Farm: Replaced a repeater to increase 4G capacity.

The addition of a sector and a carrier increases network capacity by adding more radio frequency channels. Each additional carrier added to a site will increase the network capacity at that site by an incremental amount. Adding a second carrier approximately doubles network capacity. Going from two to three additional carriers increases network capacity by approximately 50 per cent above that and going from three to four additional carriers increases capacity by a further 33 per cent. Increasing sectors adds an antenna which further improves coverage and capacity.

The 4G network provides increased bandwidth with download speeds of up to 21 Mbps per second. With 4G LTE, customers will see data speeds approximately five times faster (approximately 100 Mbps download and 50 Mbps upload) than the 4G network meaning customers can stream music, share pictures and videos, download apps and game faster than ever before.
