MTS leads in Manitoba - introduces unique flexible six-service bundle

Customers can add up to five wireless devices to receive MTS bundle savings

WINNIPEG, July 30, 2014 /CNW/ - (TSX:MBT) MTS, Manitoba's leading telecommunications provider, is now giving customers the opportunity to bundle up to six eligible services and save up to $50 on their monthly bill.

MTS is the first and only telecommunications provider in Manitoba to offer a flexible six-service bundle. Customers can choose MTS TV, high-speed Internet, or home phone services, and up to five MTS postpaid wireless plans at the same service address to create a bundle that provides exceptional overall value.

"The MTS MyBundle program is unique in Manitoba and provides unparalleled value for customers," said MTS President Kelvin Shepherd. "Our bundle strategy has been very successful, supporting strong growth in customers taking multiple services in their homes. We have also seen that bundled customers are more likely to choose MTS as their preferred service provider, and that these customers want to add more MTS services to their bundle as their household communications and entertainment needs evolve."

The number of MTS bundled customers continues to grow and is now at more than 100,000 with almost 60 per cent subscribing to four MTS services or more. Because most households have more than one wireless device, MTS has now expanded its bundling options to allow customers to bundle more wireless devices.
