SaskTel today announced it will invest $199 million in its Saskatchewan network in 2011 and approximately $670 million in a seven-year Next Generation Broadband Access Program (2011 – 2017). This program will deploy Fiber to the Premises (FTTP) and upgrade the broadband network in the nine largest urban centers in the province – Saskatoon, Regina, Moose Jaw, Weyburn, Estevan, Swift Current, Yorkton, North Battleford and Prince Albert.
In 2011, SaskTel will invest $16 million in its Next Generation Broadband Access Program. This includes DSL sustainment and FTTP deployment which targets to have 100% of homes in the nine major centres in the province passed by 2017. In 2011, SaskTel will begin servicing residences in Regina and Saskatoon with FTTP technology.
Sasktel will probably keep rate increases for existing services about the same.

I'm not sure if Sasktel will use the same technology, but here's a picture of a Bell Aliant FTTH installation. Typically the only change will be in the utility room; the set-top-boxes and in-house wiring will remain the same.
