Thinking of buying a house in Marchand Manitoba, what sort of internet if any are we going to have access to, how fast is it and how much does it cost?

Looking at the Cell coverage map...looks like you can anticipate weak and intermittent LTE coverage....and likely a total lack of HSPA.  A booster that works with LTE would likely be an absolute must in this area...and even then, you might be limited to LTE service only, which would not work for voice calls (unless or until MTS rolls out VoLTE...or you go with Rogers and get a VoLTE compatible device) 

As for Internet access...DSL would be the only option available through MTS, if it is even available. Max download speed of 7 MBPS...but realistically, you might only see 1 or 2.  A rural wireless or satellite ISP (or a cellular based plan if reliable LTE access is possible in any way) would be the alternatives.

Good morning Procaius, 

That's a really great question, and if you'd like some immediate answers for your service questions relating to that area you could contact someone from our Customer First team via any of our contact options here.  Web chat is a speedy way to get answers to your questions. :) 

Or if you prefer you can send us an email with your prospective street name to community@mts.ca and we can have someone email you the information. 

Thank you, 
Tennille

Hi Procaius,

Another option for you to check if you know of the address you are looking at is you can use our online eligibility tool found HERE.  This page gives you a list of communities we provide service to as there is a link at the top called the Service Look-up tool that allows you to input an address and it will show you what services are available there.

Another option is you can follow up with the listing agent to see what the sellers are using for services and their experiences. It would give you an idea on which companies to follow up with further for information.
