Stewart, MN –RS Fiber held an open house recently to introduce its high-speed broadband Internet, Video, and Phone services to residents of Stewart, Lake Ally, and Lake Preston.

Around 150 people attended the event, held at Cactus Jack’s II in Stewart, for the opportunity to visit with members of the RS Fiber team and to sign up for services.

RS Fiber operations manager, Ben Ranft, said while installations are currently happening in Stewart, it will be a few more weeks before services are available to those living in Lake Ally and Lake Preston.

“We were really pleased with the turnout. Presently we are connecting homes and businesses in Stewart to the high-speed fiber-optic network. We offer speeds up to a Gigabit and with our Cornerstone program, new customers can upgrade to Gigabit Internet at no additional cost. Stewart residents can also receive their video and phone services from RS Fiber. People living in Lake Ally and Lake Preston can expect to receive services soon.”

The high-speed fiber-optic network is being constructed and operated by Winona, MN based Hiawatha Broadband Communications (HBC). HBC General Manager, Dan Pecarina, says their mission at RS Fiber is to bring the best services possible to customers.

“Whether that is Gigabit service from the fiber optic network in town or broadband wireless to the most rural areas of the townships we serve, we want to deliver the best possible service and hope that we’re also enhancing their lives with the benefits our services offer.”

In addition to enjoying a catered meal, everyone in attendance was eligible to win several door prizes. The winner of a Samsung 40-inch LED TV was Robert Wilson of Buffalo Lake, Lori Vinkemeier of Stewart won an Amazon Echo Show, and the cordless phone went home with Jan Trohkimoinen from Buffalo Lake.
