Bell has officially completed the $3.9 billion acquisition and formed the new wireless and telecom player in Manitoba called Bell MTS.
On MTS’ website, the carrier notes, “It’s not often that a coming together of two companies brings such benefits to the customers and communities served by both, but that is what is happening today. MTS has been serving Manitobans for over a century and brings the learning and deep understanding of the specific needs of Manitoba’s consumers and businesses.”
We have compiled a timeline of all the historic events that made the deal happen. Bell is now the second largest wireless carrier in Canada with over 8.9 million subscribers.
