Bell and MTS announced today plans to expand LTE wireless coverage in Glenboro, Manitoba, part of a $1 billion planned investment over five years by the company in the province over five years.
Expanded LTE wireless will also blanket transportation corridors Highway 2 and Highway 5, aside from benefitting residents and businesses.
Patricia Solman, Senior Vice-President, Network & Field Services, MTS, said in a statement, “This much-needed infrastructure upgrade will benefit families, businesses and farmers, as well as the local school and hospital in the town of Glenboro and its surrounding area.”
Bell and MTS also announced expanded wireless coverage for Highway 75 in southern Manitoba, plus greater wireless and wireline broadband networks in northern Manitoba, such as Highway 6 to Thompson, in Flin Flon and in five small First Nations communities.
On Monday, Bell and MTS have a planned press conference set to place in Churchill, to announce service improvements in the area, with the Cliff Cullen, Minister of Growth, Enterprise and Trade, in attendance as part of the announcements.
Bell made a $3.9 billion acquisition of MTS, back in May.
