Saskatchewan has more LTE coverage than Manitoba. SASKATCHEWAN!!! MTS has dropped the ball time after time. You guys are so SLOWWWW at deploying new technology. So cheap. Unbelievable.

It's because of the network sharing agreement with Rogers. These 2 don't care how the network performs because no compititon if their on th same network. Look at Alberta, Telus deploys LTE in areas and Rogers is quick to follow. Rogers launches LTE in Ontario and Bell is quick to follow.

I think that also has to do with the fact that SaskTel is still a crown corp....

Could be. Sasktel does things right! They upgraded their entire network from CDMA to HSPA and now their entire network to LTE. It took MTS a long time to upgrade every community in MB from CDMA to HSPA.

Exactly its the advantage of putting money into upgrading hardware instead of having to pay stock dividends

Funny but mts as a crown corporation was still the slowest in Canada to deploy new technologies. The only thing that has changed is the name!

I was on a trail in the middle of Prince Albert National Park and had LTE coverage, I don't even get LTE coverage all over the town I live in, its ridiculous.
