Winnipeggers will soon have even more options for wirelessly connecting to the Internet at libraries, arenas, recreation complexes and other popular sites. The City of Winnipeg and MTS announced that they are partnering to offer MTS Wi-Fi service at community facilities across the city. Mayor Sam Katz and MTS President Kelvin Shepherd unveiled the plans at the Jonathan Toews Community Centre, one of the first city-run facilities to receive MTS Wi-Fi Hotspots.

'It has been a commitment of mine to provide the services that Winnipeggers need to stay connected when visiting our civic facilities, and this agreement does just that,' said Mayor Katz. 'So whether you're a parent watching your child play hockey at a local arena or need to do research on the Internet at one of our libraries, you will have access at your fingertips.'

'Libraries, arenas and rec centres allow people to gather and connect with one another,' said Mr. Shepherd. 'With MTS Wi-Fi Hotspots located in City of Winnipeg locations, MTS customers will be able to easily share a video of their child's game-winning goal, search the internet for news, access on-line entertainment or work on their university paper.'

MTS high-speed Internet and Wireless customers can access MTS Wi-Fi Hotspots for free by entering their login ID and password on a Wi-Fi enabled device. MTS also uses a unique blend of technology to automatically transfer MTS Wireless devices to Wi-Fi when they enter an MTS Wi-Fi Hotspot, allowing customers to enjoy a fast and worry-free wireless Internet connection without having to log in or provide a password.

Non-MTS customers can also connect to MTS Wi-Fi by using a credit card to provide payment.
