SaskTel offers free unlimited data on Saskatachewan’s largest Wi Fi Network in more places than Bell or Shaw. Its already offering select Wi Fi and is Free as the ability to connect to selectWI-FI is included with your SaskTel Wireless, Internet, or maxTV service. There are no additional charges or data usage fees. At select locations, users who are not SaskTel customers have the opportunity to purchase access to selectWI-FI.
Also there are no limits on how much data you can use when you’re connected to selectWI-FI. Using data over selectWI-FI does not count towards any data limits on your wireless plan. Your SaskTel wireless LTE device will automatically connect to selectWI-FI if you have the Wi-Fi on your device turned on. No typing in usernames or passwords. Also selectWI-FI is more secure than an open Wi-Fi network. It’s the preferred Wi-Fi network where available, so there’s less concern that you’ll accidentally connect to a fraudulent Wi-Fi network.
Getting connected is easy. If you are using a wireless LTE device, just make sure the Wi-Fi on your phone is on to automatically connect to selectWI-FI. If you are using a laptop, tablet, or other wireless device that is not connected to the SaskTel cellular network, access selectWI-FI through your mySASKTEL account.
