Brownton, MN – Nearly 200 people from the Brownton area turned out for Wednesday night’s RS Fiber open house at Brownton Community Center.
RS Fiber general manager, Toby Brummer, said these events are always a lot of fun.
“It’s great to be able to meet with all the people and hear the excitement that this project to bring Gigabit Internet to their community is generating. Everyone seems to be looking forward to getting hooked up and begin enjoying the service.”
The high-speed fiber-optic network is being constructed and operated by Winona, MN based Hiawatha Broadband Communications (HBC). HBC CEO/President, 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 a catered meal by Brownton Bar and Grill, those attending were also eligible to win several door prizes, including a Samsung 40-inch LED TV, an Amazon Echo Show, and a cordless phone. Prize winners were: cordless phone – Jim Sikkila; Amazon Echo Show–Nicole Templin; and a Smart TV-Audrey Tongen.
Phase One construction will wrap up this year with services being activated in Fairfax, Stewart, and Buffalo Lake.
