Internet speeds in Flin Flon were so bad that i cancelled my service until they get fiber here. If they never bring fiber then i will never be their customer again. I was paying more than in most cities and never even got 1mb down at the best of times. Flin Flon's copper infrastructure is not good enough even for bad DSL. MTS is more than happy to charge the prices they charge for services they cannot provide though. Pretty sad when "lightning" cant even stream a SD Netflix show and you have to power cycle your modem daily just to stay online. And yes i called tech support and got a canned answer every time... "reboot your modem" "Cycle your router".... blah blah its not me its your network. Stop ripping off everyone and fix it.

There are no plans to do a full scale fibre deployment (replacing all copper with fibre) in Flin Flon this year.  The plans for next year are still being finalized.  

Thanks for your question.
