At this time we don't have any plans to expand fibre or UTV to Carmen, sorry.

Coax cable is really a different thing for MTS. Essentially it is the type of technology mostly used by Shaw in Winnipeg. MTS does have some small pockets in rural Manitoba though where they took over operations of previously existing and very localized cable companies.

That said, if MTS did replace those old coax cable networks with Fion service it would definitely make things easier as they could move closer to offering unified service across the province.

Would be nice if they did move it over too Fion, but sounds like they have no planes too.
