WINNIPEG — Bell MTS is expanding its all-fibre broadband network to an additional 4,000 customers in Winkler.
The company says with the rollout of the expanded network, more than 5,000 residences and businesses in the Manitoba city will have access to faster internet.
“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 and Western Canada.
“The network build in Winkler is part of our 5-year, $1-billion investment plan in the province, and we look forward to delivering further broadband enhancements to communities large and small to ensure Manitobans have access to the best network technologies available.”
Bell MTS fibre service delivers data access speeds of up to 940 megabits per second (Mbps) now and ultimately speeds of 40 Gigabits per second (Gbps) and beyond in the future. Fibe TV next-generation television service will be introduced in Winkler later this year.
The first new customer connections are expected later this summer.
