Bell MTS and the Town of Carman in Manitoba have announced fibre broadband is expanding throughout the town, with a launch set for later in 2019.
According to Bell MTS, “direct fibre connections will offer the Pembina Valley community access to Bell MTS Gigabit Fibe Internet service,” to nearly 1,600 homes and business locations throughout Carman, along with access to Fibe TV.
“The Town of Carman is excited to partner with Bell MTS to extend high quality broadband connections to those that live, work and visit our community,” said Brent Owen, Mayor of the Town of Carman, in a statement. “Access to high-speed Internet is a priority for Carman and this Bell MTS investment will provide meaningful economic benefits for our community, while helping us keep pace with changing technology.”
The expansion is “fully funded by Bell MTS”, which will include roughly 40 kilometres of new fibre laid down directly to homes and businesses in Carman, located just over an hour’s drive southwest of Winnipeg.
“We’re proud to bring the most advanced broadband services to consumers and businesses alike in the Town of Carman,” said Dan McKeen, Vice Chair Bell MTS & Western Canada.
