Fion in Gimli

In most parts of Gimli your speed is 5Mbps, in others up to 940 Mbps. But it has nothing to do with the distance to the MTS building in town. Its scattered thru town. Does anyone at BellMts have any idea when this will be completed. I've got different answers from people on BellMts chat and phone. Many of my friends have gone to CommStream highspeed thru frustration. I would like to know if I should give up and switch also, unless somebody's got a clue it would be appreciated.

I don't speak for BellMTS. That said their pattern has been to upgrade every door to fiber. As a significant number of places in Gimli are seasonal residences they know it's a sunk cost that will likely never pay itself back. That is likely holding them back on a full upgrade.

Don't hold your breath waiting for bell/mts to upgrade to fiber. With only 400 seasonal residences, upgrading Gimli to fiber is hardly a loosing proposition. CommStream is doing it so there must be money to be made.
