SaskTel and Kodiak Networks Launch Next Generation “4G Push-to-Talk” Service

SaskTel launches 4G Push-to-Talk (4G PTT) service, the new alternative for the current 10-4 service that operates on the CDMA network.  SaskTel selected Kodiak Networks InstaPoC™ as the technology platform for its next generation of 4G PTT. The new 4G PTT service will run over SaskTel's 4G network that covers more than 98 per cent of Saskatchewan's population and connects to the national 4G network.

"Working closely with Kodiak, we have developed an excellent service for our 4G customers," said Jason Durant, SaskTel’s acting Chief Marketing Officer, "We expect the transition to be smooth.  We will waive any early device upgrade fees for current 10-4 subscribers who are ready to upgrade to the new 4G Push-to-Talk devices so they can continue to enjoy the benefits of push-to-talk."
