Fans attending Wednesday’s Winnipeg Jets home opener at Bell MTS Place will notice a difference in how their cell phones work within the building.
Bell MTS made upgrades to its LTE network in the arena over the summer, more than tripling the capacity for wireless customers. A common frustration of those who attend events in the building is slower speeds or periods of non-connectivity given the volume of other users in the vicinity. Similar headaches have been shared by football fans at Investors Group Field in the past.
WINNIPEG – Internet and mobile providers must invest in infrastructure to keep up with a booming consumer appetite for entertainment both at home and on the go, Bell Canada Enterprises CEO George Cope said Tuesday.
High-speed mobile data usage is up 37 per cent from just last year, while the amount of data streaming over the Internet has more than quadrupled in five years, Cope told the Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce.
WINNIPEG — MTS Centre has a new name. Following the acquisition of MTS by Bell earlier this year for $3.9 billion, Bell MTS is carrying on business under its new name. That means some changes are afoot at Winnipeg’s busiest entertainment venue.
The home of the Winnipeg Jets will now be known as Bell MTS Place.
