The telecommunications industry has created and operates an integral infrastructure in Canada – a competitive strength for the country that has long been associated with economic and community development.
The structure of the industry which until recently, was characterized by a few large monopoly companies, has necessitated a sophisticated regulatory system governed by the Telecommunications Act (Canada) and overseen by the CRTC.
MTS Allstream has a unique position within the Canadian telecommunications market, as the only incumbent telephone company – as the former monopoly in Manitoba – to fully embrace a pro-competitive national growth strategy. MTS Allstream offers residential and business local, long distance, Internet, digital television and wireless services in Manitoba, and is the number one competitor to the other incumbent telephone companies in the business markets in the rest of Canada.
