MORDEN, MB, – Bell MTS announced May 15 an investment to bring its next-generation all-fibre network to approximately 3,300 residences and business locations throughout the City of Morden. The network expansion will provide the fastest consumer Internet speeds in Canada to the Pembina Valley community.
Fully funded by Bell MTS, the Morden fibre network expansion is part of the Bell MTS $1 billion investment plan to deploy the most advanced fibre and wireless broadband networks throughout Manitoba.
“High speed connectivity is critical to the prosperity and well-being of our residents, businesses and visitors,” said Brandon Burley, Mayor of Morden. “Bell MTS has been an important ally to the city in providing critical communication and media services. We are excited to welcome their continued investment, which will connect us to fast, reliable internet technology and contribute to Morden’s overall competitiveness in the global economy.”
“We’re pleased to connect Morden with the world’s best Internet technology as part of our ongoing capital investment plan for Manitoba,” said Dan McKeen, Vice-chair of Bell MTS and western Canada. “Bell MTS is proud to be a major investor in the province’s future as we advance how Manitobans connect with each other and the world.”
Building on the Bell MTS all-fibre network that is connecting over 30 Manitoba municipalities, the Morden expansion will deliver home Internet speeds of up to 1.5 Gigabits per second, the fastest available in Canada. Bell MTS is also bringing direct fibre connections to homes and businesses in La Salle, Flin Flon and Churchill this year.
