We are a regional wireless carrier and our plans are designed for use primarily in Manitoba.
If your primary residence is in Manitoba and you spend time in another location you may sign up for services with us if your billing address is in Manitoba. If a customer is only living out of Manitoba for a reasonable period of time and intends to return and maintain a permanent residence in Manitoba then establishing service with us would make sense. Otherwise it would be advisable to obtain wireless services with a local, Quebec for example, regional or a national carrier.

If I were answering this question straight forward, then I would say, “No, you may not sign up for wireless service with us if you live in Montreal.”

I hope this makes the answer to the question clear.

Hey Rapha,

We definitely have the ability for folks who live out of province to have service with MTS.

In order to establish service however you would have to go to one of our MTS Connect stores located throughout the province of Manitoba. We are unable to set up service for cellular over the phone or through an online avenue.

For service to get up and running you will need to provide 2 pieces of legal identification as well as agree to a credit check to provide a history on your credit worthiness. Based on these results you may be required to put down a credit deposit which is held on the file for 6 months and returned to you at a later day so long as bills are paid in full and on time.

After that you would work with the Connect store employee to pick out a plan and a handset that best fit your needs. This being said, if you're not primarily going to be inside Manitoba then I would recommend making sure that you go with choices that include long distance charges and enough data while across Canada.

Hope this helps clear things up. Please give us a shout if you have any other questions.
