Why is it that in rural manitoba we have to pay the same price as winnipeg for sub par speeds. Winnipeg gets fast internet and we get crap. And have to pay the same price. Mts should change there name to wts. They obviously dont care about anything but winnipeg.

Hey Josh,
CoryB sums it up perfectly.  It basically boils down to the fact that the cost to provide service to rural areas is higher but we don't usually charge more for the service in these areas.  The trade off is the lower grade of service in certain areas.  With that being said there are many towns that have top notch service.. and on the flip side there are areas of Winnipeg that have severely degraded service as well.
