Due to its location near the railway tracks 166 Portage Ave East is one of the two major long distance switching hubs for Manitoba, as well as housing the network control center for Manitoba and a few local telephone switches.

The reason I mention the rail tracks is both CN and CP have major leased communications fiber optic lines running in their right of ways and the lines all tie into the Portage and Main area thru the east Exchange district for Les Net, Bell, BellMTS, Zayo etc.
