Check your Data Plan. The current plans generally include up to 300 MB for the rest of Canada outside Manitoba.

According to @talktoMTS on Twitter today, roaming on LTE outside Manitoba will not come into effect until later this year.

MTS turns up its 4G LTE Wireless Network in Selkirk

Quote:
The expansion of the MTS 4G LTE Wireless Network is part of a $40 million investment MTS is making in its rural Manitoba networks in 2013. In addition to 4G LTE, MTS is also investing this year to bring DSL-based high-speed Internet service to 20 new communities, and expanding MTS's fibre-to-the-home technology to an additional 5,000 homes throughout the province.

I chuckle when I hear about the communities that are just getting DSL now. They're gonna party like it's 1999!

MTS launches 4G LTE Wireless Network in Ste. Anne

Quote:
"MTS committed to connecting six more Manitoba communities to its 4G LTE wireless network before the end of 2013, and with the addition of Ste. Anne, we completed our goal," said MTS President Kelvin Shepherd. "More than 800,000 Manitobans now have access to blazing-fast LTE wireless coverage from MTS."
Note: Manitoba's population is about 1.2 million - LTE coverage is about 65% of Manitoba's population.

That's a pretty solid percentage for coverage!

Would it be possible to use a modem for business/home access for this type of service? I have no use for a smart phone, but I would like faster access for the office computers here and MTS only offers us dial-up, so we had to go to another wireless service.

I did try an MTS 3G dongle a while back and it really had no bandwidth advantage over dial-up. Maybe there is some progress now?

I am located about 3 miles from their cell tower, no LOS issues.

Cham, are you sure there's LTE coverage in your area?

Here's the list of LTE locations:

Winnipeg, Brandon, Steinbach, Selkirk, Portage la Prairie, Grand Beach, Victoria Beach and Ste. Anne.

You can get an LTE Huawei E397 Internet Stick from MTS.

If you're interested in 4G HSPA+, it will definitely be faster than 3G and probably has coverage in your area. I'm not sure how the real-world speeds would compare to your current provider

Thank you for the link Dr Dave.
Would really like something that uses ethernet rather than USB, not sure how to incorporate that type of device in the network here, the main router has no USB port. For 1/2 price of the existing service I could splurge for a new router with USB port support though.

Current provider provides 500Kb/s 24/7 for about $100/mo., but real throughput drops to about 40Kb/s during the day and worse in the evening.

The Jet Hub GlobeSurfer III+ might be an option. It looks like it has 2 Ethernet jacks plus it supports Wi-Fi. You may have to go on a Jet Hub plan which includes unlimited local calling though.

Yes was looking at that... the $3k/2 yr contract is a bit steep though. Don't think we have an extra $600 for service. Was hoping we could save at least that much for maybe 1Mb/s throughput, quite a bit more than what we have now.
Will have to wait and see I guess...
Progress seems to go backwards here in rural Manitoba.
