MTS to launch 4G LTE wireless services in Manitoba

Telecom Lead Europe: MTS has decided to launch 4G LTE wireless services in Manitoba.

MTS’s 4G LTE wireless network provides download speeds of up to 75 Mbps to customers in Winnipeg and Brandon.

MTS is wholly-owned by Manitoba Telecom Services.

“We will invest in Manitobans to offer the most advanced technology the industry has to offer. We are pleased with the performance of our new network, and with its deployment, MTS continues to offer the best overall wireless data experience to more Manitobans than any other provider in Manitoba,” said MTS President Kelvin Shepherd.

MTS’s 4G LTE Wireless Network is currently available in Winnipeg and Brandon and complements its 4G HSPA+ Wireless services.

MTS plans to expand its new network to more communities across Manitoba in 2013. Customers who do not reside in a 4G LTE coverage area are still able to take advantage of MTS’s new 4G LTE wireless devices on the current 4G HSPA+ wireless network.

MTS will continue to expand its handset line-up as new LTE-enabled devices become available.

MTS operates advanced wireless networks delivering the best coverage for Manitobans with its 4G LTE, 4G HSPA+, CDMA and Wi-Fi wireless networks, and is investing to build out its extensive fibre-to-the-home network in over 20 Manitoba communities.
