MTS Launches LTE in Swan River, Network Now Reaches 850,000 People

Residents of Swan River in Manitoba will be happy to hear MTS has officially announced the launch of their LTE network there, to allow download speeds of up to 150Mbps. The regional carrier has launched LTE in Dauphin, Falcon Lake, Jessica Lake, West Hawk Lake, Gimli, Hecla, Altona, Winkler, Thompson and Morden so far in 2014.

“I’m pleased that eleven more Manitoba communities will now enjoy everything MTS’s fastest wireless network has to offer,” said MTS President Kelvin Shepherd. “LTE offers data speeds that are up to ten times faster than the current HSPA+ technology, ensuring customers enjoy their new LTE smartphones to the fullest.”
