SaskTel’s gift to you: Unlimited wireless data this holiday season

SaskTel’s gift to you: Unlimited wireless data this holiday season

December 14, 2020

Today, SaskTel announced that it will be providing unlimited wireless data to its customers from December 17, 2020 to January 11, 2021. Data overage charges will be waived during this time period, for business and consumer customers on SaskTel’s postpaid wireless data plans, noSTRINGS Prepaid wireless plan and SaskTel fusion Internet plans. Customers on unlimited wireless plans will not be subject to speed reductions.

“As the province’s leading communications provider, SaskTel knows how important it is to stay connected. This is especially true this holiday season as we know it won’t look the same as previous years,” said Don Morgan, Minister Responsible for SaskTel. “Waiving data overages is just one way SaskTel can help customers continue to create those special memories with loved ones near or far.”

“SaskTel is pleased to help loved ones come together and stay safe over the holidays,” said Doug Burnett, SaskTel President and CEO. “If this means sharing a meal or opening a gift is done over an app like FaceTime or Zoom, SaskTel can provide the connectivity to make that happen.”

SaskTel’s internet plans are already unlimited, so customers can use as much data as needed during this time with the peace of mind of having no additional fees or throttling of data. Now more than ever, establishing non-physical connections and keeping family traditions alive, even if they happen virtually, is important for everyone’s happiness and well-being.

With customers not having to be concerned about how their data is being used, downloads, browsing and streaming can be done to keep the whole family entertained.  Play music, discover a virtual zoo or museum or even binge watch your favourite series!

SaskTel is also providing its maxTV and maxTV Stream customers with access to additional news and entertainment channels to help keep them informed and their family entertained. For a full list of free previews available to SaskTel customers, visit www.sasktel.com.

“Take care of yourself this holiday season, make that phone call to a long-lost friend or schedule a virtual coffee break with your grandma. SaskTel cares about its customers and we truly thank them for making us their provider of choice,” said Burnett. “On behalf of everyone here at SaskTel, we’d like to wish you all a healthy and happy holiday season!”
