If the speeds I was getting on my lightning 20 plan are any indication, I would expect the lightning 25 plan to be very close to advertised speeds. While I am not in the Transcona area of the city, MTS has no saturation issues like Shaw is famous for. The speed issues with the lightning 50 plan seem to be more to do with it being a new feature with MTS. I know that they seem to be learning as they go with it, but having said that, I have 3 specific speed test sites now that I go to and my speeds are always above 42 mbps. When I had the lightning 20 plan my speed NEVER dropped below 19mbps, compared to the Shaw BB100 plan which gave me speeds below 3mbps for at least 8-12 hours every day after 3pm and all day on weekends or whenever school was out.
