There are now faster internet speeds in La Ronge and Air Ronge.

SaskTel says it has launched High Speed interNET Extended 10 in both northern communities.

If features download speeds up to 10 megabits per second, which is twice as fast as what’s currently offered in La Ronge and Air Ronge.

The upgrade is part of SaskTel’s commitment to invest over $300 million in capital in Saskatchewan in 2017/18 and $1.4 billion from 2016 to 2021.
