seeeing the expansion of internet is happening to some Communities, will areas around the city also get expanded? reason I ask is I live 15 kms from winnipeg beach, and 18 km from teulon I also live 500 yards off of 229 ( Komarno Road for some people) and 2 kms from from highway 7 which has a internet cable running from winnipeg to arborg and yet I can't even get access to highspeed internet. will my area get internet in this expansion or will I have to wait 20 years for it to reach me...

Most people in rural areas outside towns, which it sounds like you are, will likely get coverage in some form between 2026 and 2031. Keep in mind how you get coverage and how much it costs are currently not covered by the federal government madanate on 50/10 to every residence.

I've got friends living in the Eclipse area less than 2km from Dauphin and they are unable to get internet as well.

That close to Dauphin there should be some very simple ways to get very good access even if buying from BellMTS and relaying it out that distance to their home.  :) If there was a way of messaging here I'd say drop me a line.  I don't live there but must be a wireless provider within that distance from the city?
