Connectivity

Manitoba Hydro owns and operates a fibre plant spanning thousands of kilometres throughout the province. The plant is used to control and protect the power system in Manitoba. Manitoba Hydro Telecom (MHT) leverages this cable plant to provide an extensive broadband network to deliver services in Winnipeg and rural Manitoba.

The fibre supports both our clients and the local utility, Manitoba Hydro. The support from Manitoba Hydro helps us offer the best fibre optic services in Manitoba. Network and Internet services are available at the bandwidth to suit your organization’s needs with prices that make sense.
