So 2 tests show I am getting my money's worth, 4 don't. So I'll say again, I could be getting ripped off and have absolutely no way to prove it. And if I believe MTS own test then I am getting less than 1/2 the speed I am paying for.
It seems to me that when you do different speed tests, the one constant factor is your local connection to MTS. The variation has to come from the far end. Therefore, the fastest result has to be true for your home to the MTS server.
Not necessarily the "best" speed test out there but I was downloading a large file this weekend and my Lighting 25 was reporting a steady number suggesting the connection was actually at 30 Mbps and even tipped into the 31 range at times. As advertised it would not exceed 25. I have seen this behaviour in the past too before official speed bumps were announced. MTS also has a history of giving higher than posted Internet speeds to customers that have TV and Internet which I do.
I'm wondering if "history" is the appropriate word here, or is it just a rumour?
I don't know how someone would verify that customers in the same location with varying numbers of services would get different speeds.
Just received an odd call from "Midwest Telecom Services" offering me a free upgrade for 3 months to Lightning 25. They seemed to know information about MTS, but the woman certainly sounded a bit "sketchy"... decided not to jump on it and to call MTS directly to find out. Anyone else?
Would it be midwest teleservices international? I just did a search, and they are located in Brandon. I would be apprehensive too, but as far as I know, all the MTS Connect stores are owned by third parties. So I would assume this is the same case with phone sales.
This thread will be for rumours, channel deletions and complaining about any channel not offered by MTS TV.
Actual confirmed new channel announcements and channel deletions will now have their own thread.

This thread is for discussion of MTS Free Previews:
MTS has a free preview on channel 40 every month. If they have more than one preview, they usually follow channel 40. I believe the previews have to be co-ordinated with the channel owner to waive subscription fees. Therefore, any previews...
