MTS Fibre Optic Network

Introducing MTS's Fibre Optic Network - the MTS FiON® Network

As part of our ongoing investment in Manitoba, we are upgrading our traditional copper wiring network to a next generation fibre optic network - the MTS Fibre Optic Network (MTS FiON Network).

With the MTS FiON Network, our fibre optic cables are connected to a buildings existing wiring. This next generation network supplies a huge amount of bandwidth into a business — providing customers with higher quality, more reliable Phone, High Speed Internet and TV* services, now and in the future. The MTS FiON Network also enables MTS services to work together seamlessly as additional bandwidth is available to meet our customers' evolving needs.

The launch of the MTS FiON Network means those businesses will be eligible for the next generation of high definition television - MTS Ultimate TV service - as well as our fastest Internet broadband connections available, enabling the development of new High Speed Internet plans exclusive to the MTS FiON Network.

MTS FiON Network - FAQs

What is the MTS FiON Network?

The MTS FiON Network is a new technology (commonly known as Fibre-to-the-Business) that uses fibre optic cables instead of the traditional copper wiring to deliver Voice, Internet, and TV services to a building. Fibre uses light instead of electricity to carry a signal, providing the house with a direct fibre optic connection that allows MTS services to work together seamlessly as additional bandwidth is available to meet customers' evolving needs.

Why is the FiON Network important for my business?

Increased Speeds

Fast and reliable Internet is essential to do business. With the MTS FiON Network, your business will get Internet speeds up to 100 Mbps, making the transfer of large files and streaming audio or video effortless.


As your business grows, so does the demand on your network. With the MTS FiON Network, additional bandwidth can be added seamlessly to ensure your business network has the bandwidth it needs.

Future Proof

We're constantly developing new products and services for the MTS FiON Network. Once connected, your business will be eligible for MTS Ultimate TV® for Business, and any new products or services will be launched to you first! Even faster speeds, innovative products, or anything else we can think of that will make it easier for you to do business.

What kind of equipment is used?

Instead of a traditional copper network, MTS runs a system of next generation fibre optic cables throughout a building or community. This network is connected to the existing wiring inside a location by a device called an Optical Network Terminal (ONT). The ONT converts the fibre optic signal so that it can be distributed over the businesses existing wiring. In most cases, the ONT will be installed in the telecom room.
