WINNIPEG, Nov. 9, 2012 /CNW/ - MTS today announced that its high-speed
Internet service just got faster with three new consumer plans: MTS
FiON® Lightning 50, MTS FiON® Lightning 100, and MTS FiON® Lightning 250.
"Our new FiON Lightning high-speed Internet plans offer some of the
fastest speeds in Manitoba," said MTS President Kelvin Shepherd. "And
with free wireless home networking included, these plans are ideal for
households that have several family members online at the same time
using different devices."
Details and pricing:
With download speeds of up to 250 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 30
Mbps, these very high-speed Internet plans offer unlimited usage and
are designed for users with medium to extremely heavy Internet use
requirements. These plans are available in communities where MTS has
launched the MTS FiON Network.

networks. MTS is investing $125 million over several years to deploy
this fibre-to-the-home network to 120,000 homes in Manitoba. Since
2010, MTS has launched the MTS FiON Network in Selkirk, Steinbach, Dauphin, Thompson, The Pas, Neepawa,
Carberry, select areas of Winnipeg, and will be coming soon to
Minnedosa and Killarney.
