Many people here in Winkler have noticed that Manitoba Hydro is running new fiber lines to the MTS building. 

Can you comment on whether this will mean improvements to our service? Like fiber for the rest of the city or at least VDSL2 ?

I cant imagine MTS not upgrading the rest of the city with VISP taking away so many customers already.

It could also mean that Hydro is using MTS as a backup to the existing private Manitoba Hydro fiber system for service reliability to the Morden / Winkler office and or the  major area substation control room.

A lot of telecom companies buy / lease / trade service from their competitors (Hydro has a wholesale telecom division) to provide a backup in case their primary  link goes down .
