High'r Speeds for Blumenort and Ste. Anne's!?

  • Updated 3 years ago
Is there any plans for improving speeds in the Blumenort and Ste. Anne's area? We currently have "Lightning" with 7/768 speeds and average about 6/700. This plan is iffy at best for watching HD Netflix, not to mention a little surfing at the same time. We have Fiber in Blumenort at the pedestals, but need it completed/trenched to the home and the service turned up. Blumenort is so close to Steinbach, you can see the city from my yard, yet so far and disappointing to have such slow speeds. I miss my Shaw 100 service when living in winnipeg! Please advise when FiON will be available. It's still worth the trip out here!

Hi there, 
We don't have our plans for 2016 finalized to be able to announce anything yet. There are numerous factors which determine which communities receive fibre and when, some of which CoryB mentioned. We'll be sure to post any news of locations of future expansions on the MTS Community :)
