As part of our ongoing investment in Manitoba, we're upgrading our traditional copper wiring network to a next generation fibre optic network - the MTS Fibre Optic Network (aka Fibre-To-The-Business). 

What is the MTS FiON Network?
The MTS FiON Network is a new technology that uses fibre optic cables instead of the traditional copper wiring to deliver Voice, Internet, and TV services to a building. Fibre uses light instead of electricity to carry a signal, providing the house with a direct fibre optic connection that allows MTS services to work together seamlessly as additional bandwidth is available to meet customers' evolving needs.

Why is the FiON Network important for my business?
Increased Speeds
Fast and reliable Internet is essential to do business. With the MTS FiON Network, businesses get Internet speeds up to 100 Mbps, making the transfer of large files and streaming audio or video effortless.
As a business grows, so does the demand on a business's network. With the MTS FiON Network, additional bandwidth can be added seamlessly to ensure the business network has the bandwidth it needs.
Future Proof
Once connected, a business is eligible for MTS Ultimate TV® for Business, faster speeds, and innovative new products.

What kind of equipment is used?
Instead of a traditional copper network, MTS runs a system of next generation fibre optic cables throughout a building or community. This network is connected to the existing wiring inside a location by a device called an Optical Network Terminal (ONT). The ONT converts the fibre optic signal so that it can be distributed over the businesses existing wiring. In most cases, the ONT will be installed in the telecom room.

Is it available for my business?
We're continuing to expand to more businesses in Manitoba throughout 2015. For a list of current communities currently offering The MTS FiON Network to Business, check out this page on our website: http://www.mts.ca/mts/business/mts+fibre+optic+network
