MTS Allstream Inc. announced today that it will move forward with steps to introduce next generation high-speed Internet and TV services to Manitoba customers with more high-definition TV (HDTV) offerings, personal and digital video recorder functionality and improved guide features.

The new services will be powered by a combination of Alcatel-Lucent network connectivity provided by Alcatel-Lucent Canada Inc. and Microsoft Mediaroom Internet Protocol Television (“IPTV”) and multimedia platform.

MTS Allstream is entering into agreements with both companies that will enable it to introduce an initial set of services on a limited basis in 2008. A trial location outside of Winnipeg is being considered.
