MTS Expanding WiFi to More City Facilities

November 4, 2013 11:04 AM | News

MTS is expanding its WiFi network to provide Internet access to its customers in more locations around the city.

The City of Winnipeg has partnered with the telecom company to offer WiFi in libraries, arenas, recreation complexes and other popular sites.

MTS president Kelvin Shepherd made the announcement on Monday at the Jonathan Toews Community Centre in St. Vital, one of the first city-run facilities to receive MTS WiFi hotspots.

Access to the network will be free for existing MTS Internet customers. Non-customers can pay $5 for 24 hours of access.

MTS plans to extend its WiFi offerings to 350 city locations over the next two years at a cost of $2 million.

Last October, the City of Winnipeg announced a similar partnership with Shaw to provide free WiFi in civic facilities for existing customers.
