Approximately 20 rural Saskatchewan communities will be getting access to SaskTel’s fibre Internet service, infiNET, over the next four years as part of a new $50-million project by the Crown corporation.
On Thursday, SaskTel announced its Rural Fibre Initiative, which is intended to bring the Crown’s fibre-optics network to approximately 30,000 households and businesses in smaller communities. The first phase of the project will introduce fibre Internet to the majority of residents in Balgonie, Biggar, Langham and Pilot Butte by March 2022. Phase two of the initiative will be announced later in 2021.
“Through our Rural Fibre Initiative, residents and business owners in many of our smaller communities can continue to confidently build their future knowing they’ll soon have access to the best communications infrastructure available,” said Doug Burnett, SaskTel president and CEO, in a news release.
With bushfire season officially starting this week, a new app and website have been launched to help West Australians better prepare for the coming summer.
Called My Bushfire Plan, the online tools are an Australian-first and aim to help users to make critical decisions such as when to leave, what to take and where to go before a fire encroaches on their home.
Commissioned by the Department of Fire and Emergency Services, the website and app have been released in conjunction with a hard-hitting bushfire awareness advertising campaign.
The new $1 million How Fireproof is Your Plan? campaign urges people to rethink their personal risk with just one in 10 West Aussies having a bushfire plan.
The television advertisements show people, children and livestock trapped in dangerous bushfire scenarios after leaving it too late to leave during an emergency.
Emergency Services Minister Fran Logan said West Aussies have no excuse

Documents reviewed by Reuters show strong pushback against the plan. The Transportation Department said the FCC plan is “a particularly dangerous regulatory approach when public safety is at stake.”
FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said this week the commission will vote Nov. 18 to finalize a plan to divide the 5.9 GHz spectrum block reserved in 1999 for automakers to develop technology to allow vehicles to talk to each other and traffic infrastructure, but has so far gone largely unused.
Pai would shift 30 megahertz of the 75 megahertz reserved for Dedicated Short-Range Communications (DSRC) to enable a different automotive communications technology called Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything, or C-V2X, while
