Experts and Pioneers in Fiber networks

With telecom industry world-firsts, we are a pioneer with fiber technology. In 1984, SaskTel designed and constructed the world’s longest fiber optics network. At 2,000 miles long, which was 200 times longer than the longest fiber network in the world at that time, it was considered a pioneering innovation.

Other telecoms took notice and in 1986 SaskTel  formed an international division – SaskTel International, to partner with clients throughout the world to design, build, and construct fiber networks. 

Fiber Solutions from Engineering to Digital OSS Solutions



We provide a integrated OSS suite of applications to enable auto provisioning of fiber networks.

Our software suite provides service order management, inventory management, service and resource activation and trouble management for fiber networks. Intelligent assignment and order orchestration ensures services are activated right the first time.

The suite integrates with billing, CRM and WFM applications to provide a comprehensive BSS/OSS solution to enable you to provide a high quality experience to your customers.

The vast and unique geography of Saskatchewan coupled with a population that is largely rural-based and widely dispersed have presented significant challenges but also opportunities for SaskTel.

To meet the communications demands of the population, SaskTel has implemented creative and unique solutions through strategic infrastructure investments, such as a 4G LTE roll out and a new fiber-to-the-home and business deployment.

SaskTel has achieved over 99% population coverage for the province in its entirety.
