MTS launches domestic and international LTE roaming
MTS, Manitoba's leading full-service telecommunications provider, now offers customers access to LTE Wireless service in urban centres across Canada. MTS also announced today that customers can enjoy LTE roaming in several international locations, including most major urban centres in the U.S.A.
"MTS is proud that our customers have the ability to stay connected to LTE while travelling outside of Manitoba," said MTS President Kelvin Shepherd. "MTS customers can connect to LTE in over 80 locations in Canada, and we are one of only two Canadian carriers to announce the launch of international LTE roaming."
LTE roaming is automatically enabled for MTS customers using the latest LTE devices, such as the Samsung Galaxy S4™, BlackBerry ® Q10, and Sony Xperia™ ZL. LTE devices will seamlessly transfer to LTE where available.
MTS offers U.S. and international data travel packs that allow customers to pre-purchase data they can use when roaming outside of Canada. Added to existing wireless plans, the data packs save money and take the worry out of staying connected when travelling.
MTS launched its 4G LTE wireless network in Winnipeg and Brandon in 2012, and expanded the service to Victoria Beach, Grand Beach, Portage la Prairie, Selkirk, Steinbach and Ste. Anne in 2013. MTS plans to cover more than 90 per cent of Manitoba's population with 4G LTE wireless service over the next five years.
