Bell MTS in Manitoba is set to expand its all-fibre broadband Internet in the City of Winkler, growing the footprint to reach an additional 4,000 residential and business customers, taking the total to 5,000 locations.
“As a leader in modern technology, the City of Winkler is pleased with the efforts of Bell MTS to provide a selection of services that will meet the needs of the City of Winkler for the next generation,” said Martin Harder, Mayor of Winkler.
Bell MTS fibre to the premises (FTTP) offers symmetrical data access speeds of up to 940 Mbps, with future capabilities of 40 Gigabits per second and beyond. Fibe TV will launch in Winkler “later this year”, powered by Bell MTS fibre.
“The expansion of the Bell MTS all-fibre network will continue to be a major contributor to ongoing economic growth in the region,” said Dan McKeen, Vice Chair Bell MTS & Western Canada.
The network expansion funded by Bell MTS will add over 50 kilometres of new fibre installations, on utility poles and underground locations, with expanded service set to launch later this summer.
