The Bell MTS all-fibre broadband network is expanding to Carman

Bell MTS and the Town of Carman today announced plans to expand the Bell MTS all-fibre broadband network to approximately 1,600 residences and business locations throughout the town.

These direct fibre connections will offer the Pembina Valley community access to Bell MTS Gigabit Fibe Internet service as well as the innovative Fibe TV television service with 4K picture quality and exclusive viewing features.

Fully funded by Bell MTS, the network expansion includes approximately 40 kilometres of new fibre installation directly to homes and commercial locations throughout Carman. The first customer connections are expected later this year.

Comment: Like Winkler, Carmen is served by a Cable TV system purchased by MTS many years ago.

Bell MTS investing $400 million to connect Winnipeg with the world's best Internet technology
  • All-fibre network connections to 275,000 residences and business locations
  • Investment to create more than 1,100 new jobs, $900 million in economic activity
  • Largest-ever Manitoba communications infrastructure project closely coordinated with Manitoba Hydro and the City of Winnipeg
As part of its $1 billion capital investment plan for Manitoba, Bell MTS today announced it is investing approximately $400 million to bring the fastest Internet technology to Winnipeg, with direct fibre connections to approximately 275,000 homes and commercial locations throughout the city.

"Winnipeg is an emerging technology leader, and the Bell MTS all-fibre network will be key to accelerating the city's innovation and economic opportunities. Our fibre links offer the fastest consumer Internet available in Canada now, and will be ready to grow in speed and capacity to ensure Manitobans have full access to the communications services of the future," said Mirko Bibic, President and Chief Executive Officer of BCE Inc. and Bell Canada. "Our Winnipeg fibre rollout is the largest single project in our $1 billion Bell MTS capital investment plan for Manitoba, and the biggest single communications investment in Manitoba's history. As we celebrate the province's 150th birthday, Bell MTS is proud to advance the way Manitobans connect with each other and the world."

"This is a significant investment from Bell MTS that will benefit the residents and business community of Winnipeg," said Ralph Eichler, Minister of Economic Development and Training. "This investment further supports the emergence of Winnipeg and Manitoba as a regional tech hub and will expand upon the infrastructure required to support Manitoba's growing IT sector and innovation, as well as attract global industries that require advanced fibre networks."

"Today's $400 million investment announcement by Bell MTS is a welcome vote of confidence in the City of Winnipeg," said Mayor Brian Bowman. "As we grow to 1 million people, investments like this help to build our city for the future."

Fully funded by Bell, the fibre project will offer Winnipeggers access to leading Bell MTS services such as Gigabit Fibe Internet, Whole Home Wi-Fi and Fibe TV in addition to future advanced technologies enabled by the high data speeds and capacity of fibre connections.

Bell MTS estimates the Winnipeg project will create more than 1,100 direct and indirect jobs in Winnipeg and other Manitoba locations and an additional $900 million in new economic activity. Bell MTS is partnering with a wide range of suppliers to roll out the expansion, including ACME Technical Services, Aecon, Central Telecom, Crown Pipeline, Mobia Technology Innovations, WP Teletronics and Valard.

Bell MTS is working closely with Manitoba Hydro and the City of Winnipeg to ensure maximum efficiency in the buildout, which will leverage innovative installation techniques and state-of-the-art equipment to minimize disruption for residents and businesses.

From the FAQ at the last link:

Q: How much time will it take to bring fibre across Winnipeg?
A: This will be a progressive rollout to almost 275,000 homes and businesses throughout Winnipeg over the next few years. Some of Winnipeg already has access to the technology today and we plan to have the majority of the build completed by the end of 2022.
