Saskatoon, SK approves a free Wi-Fi pilot to improve connectivity during the COVID-19 outbreak

Saskatoon, SK Free Wi-Fi Pilot COVID-19 Connectivity

Planning

The city council approved a limited low-bandwidth network in response to connectivity issues among low-income households. Saskatoon officials pursued free Wi-Fi in response to uneven access by targeted households to online public health information. A 10-block service area will provide sufficient bandwidth to facilitate video calls and basic Internet access. Saskatoon and its project partners will evaluate the feasibility of expanded or citywide access during the pilot.
