I have fibre cabling running into my basement and into a fibre box
before reaching the MTS router. How is it that MTS charges $280 for
250Mb/s down (and 30Mb/s up) while google can charge $70 for 1000Mb/s (and 1000Mb/s up)?
Is this a problem of poor infrastructure, lack of serious competition for customers, or
something more sinister that I would hope is not the case?

Hi Harold, It’s a difficult comparison to make due to us having such different market sizes, like Jimmy T mentioned. Our market size is significantly smaller as we’re a regional carrier so there’s less flexibility for our pricing.
