crazydutch That's correct, been living here now for 6 months.
I'm moving down to Carman,MB next week so i'm hoping to get faster speeds there seeing as it's a lot closer to winnipeg
also thanks for the quick reply and the Telephone number i will sure give them a call in the next week or so if my speed in Carman doesn't improve.
And yeah i'm used to ''very'' fast internet, in Holland there's a lot of competition between the internet providers i'm sure there's about 5 ''BIG ones''
so they have to keep the prices down and the speeds up, i think it's hard to do in a country with such a size as Canada with a widespread population though, the market simply isn't big enough in Rural areas.

shawguy welcome to the forums crazydutch!

I am also assuming you are new to Canada... Here 20MBps is the fastest we can get and its about $100 a month, so for MTS' light speed package, I believe those are the correct speeds, (if you call 225-5687 its a free call anywhere in MB with MTS - they would be able to tell you for sure) I don't know if you can get much faster up in Dauphin - probably top at 3-5Mbps, but I know here in Winnipeg, there are a couple more options other than MTS also.

MTS advertised speeds

Hi there Digitalhome forum,

I'm wondering what the MTS internet speeds should be, i'm not very happy with our speed.
we are getting 264/256 with the Light package in Dauphin, Manitoba
Does anyone know if this is the correct speed ?
It's very slow to what i'm used to, i used to pay about the same price in Holland, Europe for a 20MBps connection
