I hope I can help clarify this for you, currently Glenboro runs on the MTS ADSL network which can ideally enable up to 7mbps download speeds via the Lightning Reach service. At this time this is the highest available service via this network. MTS is looking to expand the FION network which starts with an up to 10mbps download service and has a variety of speeds all the way up to 250mbps download. 

At this time there is no estimated launch date for this community, and to my current knowledge there are no plans to set this up in the community.
This is not to say that this will not happen and that this is not being planned, as I do not know these things until the launch is about to happen, as this ensures we are not creating false hope or setting poor expectations due to possible delays.

The best way to stay informed is to let MTS known privately via Facebook, Twitter, by webchat, email or by phone and having them add you to the Fion Interest list. This allows MTS to track interest in the services you want (Such as faster Internet, or Tv service), and helps with planning for expansions as we can see the demand from a customer then, instead of just assuming that the service is wanted. It's all supply and demand after all. 

I hope this helped clarify this for you, if you have any questions please let me know.
