A Manitoba-based telecom company has agreed to sell its Winnipeg-based internet service for $50 a month.
Comcast agreed to buy Spectrum, the Winnipeg-area provider that was part of the cable TV service offered by Rogers Communications, for $150 million in April 2016.
The deal is part of Comcast’s strategy to expand into the country’s biggest city and is part-owned by Rogers.
The combined company owns Winnipeg-Dominion Bank and Manitoba Telecom.
The combined company has more than 50,000 subscribers.
