MTS Allstream Inc. will roll out fourth-generation LTE mobile services in Manitoba in 2012, the company announced last week. In a release, MTS said its LTE network will feature average user speeds up to five times faster than MTS’s current HSPA+ wireless network. "With the deployment of LTE technology, MTS expects to continue to offer the best overall wireless data experience in the most locations within Manitoba," Kelvin Shepherd, president of MTS, said in a release. "LTE will further improve our customers' wireless service experience by providing increased data speeds, access to exciting new wireless devices and by increasing their ability to access converged multi-media services across MTS high-speed Internet, WiFi, and mobile wireless networks." The company said that when it launches the first phase of its new network, customers with LTE devices can access to MTS’s network with roaming capabilities where LTE is not yet available.
