With Sasktel launching their LTE network tomorrow, as a resident of Regina, Saskatchewan, will I be able to use it? If not immediately, soon enough?

I'm a Koodo customer, but from my understanding, Koodo uses Sasktel's tower, which is why I'm hoping I'll be able to gain LTE speeds soon.

Tower sharing doesn't mean you can use a different network. Even on a shared tower, every network would have to have their own equipment on said tower.

What Sasktel has with Telus and Bell is a roaming agreement for 3G. There, Koodo customers can roam on the Sasktel 3G network and vice versa. I'm not aware of a similar deal having been announced for LTE.

Sasktel had announced LTE coverage for Regina and Saskato0n for fall 2012 - now its February 2013. We'll see how everything plays out.
