Visitors to City Hall, the downtown transit terminal, and several City leisure facilities can now enjoy complimentary WiFi service with guest access powered by Shaw Go WiFi. The service, made possible through a partnership agreement with Shaw Communications Inc, is an exciting initiative through the City’s new service model – Service Saskatoon.
“Access to complimentary public WiFi is a benchmark for modern cities”, says Mayor Donald Atchison. “The internet keeps people connected, informed and part of our great city. I believe everyone should have the opportunity to access the complimentary WiFi at City owned locations. This makes sense.”
“The new WiFi services at key sites across Saskatoon will provide a cost-effective opportunity for people to stay more closely connected to their friends, family, and work colleagues while on-the-go,” said Greg Pultz, Vice President, Operations, Shaw Communications. “Providing these services in collaboration with a great partner like the City of Saskatoon furthers our ability to deliver an enhanced connectivity experience to Canadians.”
“Through our new and improved approach to service with the introduction of Service Saskatoon, we want to create multiple channels for citizens to access the information they need and answers they require,” says Pat Hyde, Director of Service Saskatoon. “With that purpose in mind, the Service Saskatoon public WiFi initiative will assist residents in connecting to the information they need on the internet including City programs and services.”
Saskatoon residents and visitors can access the Shaw Go WiFi network on their WiFi enabled devices by selecting ‘ShawGuest’ from the list of available WiFi settings and following the on-screen instructions to connect. Shaw customers will be able to automatically log onto the WiFi service through the Shaw Go WiFi network.
