Good morning,

A question;  How come MTS does not report your payment history to Equifax or credit reporting agencies.  I have a very good bill payment history and I know other telecom companies report to them.  The reason I am asking is I am trying to build a credit history     Thank you in advance!   Gordon

Hi Gordon,
We do not report on active or live accounts and the associated payment history because it currently involves significant resources to report out to credit agencies. This is because anytime there are adjustments made to accounts we would need to manually send that information in. This is a newer activity in the telco industry, and perhaps may be re-visited by us in the future but as of now it is not what we're doing.
