ROSEMOUNT, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fiber To The Home (FTTH) Communications is teaming with Rosemount High School (RHS) Site Council parents to bridge the missing link between the school and the stadium, as well as creating an “Irish” channel on FTTH’s network. The Irish channel will allow, for the first time, stadium games and events, such as graduations, concerts and awards programs, to be broadcast within the community.
“People can come in and see and touch the product to help them decide”
Rosemount High School, Rosemount School Site Council Parents, and FTTH are launching "Irish Up!"— a fundraising partnership to help pay for the new fiber optic line. The goal is to generate $10,000, which also would create and maintain the RHS channel. Along with stadium events, it would showcase academic and artistic events.
For each new subscriber in FTTH’s fiberhoods (Evermoor and Harmony Village), FTTH will donate $50 to the cause. Current subscribers who upgrade their services will earn the project $25. If more than 100 new subscribers sign up, FTTH will increase the bounty to $75, topping out at 200 new subscribers.
"Improving coverage of Rosemount High School activities fits with our goals of supporting the communities we serve, growing our business and adding jobs to the local economy," said FTTH CEO Jeffrey Feldman.
The Irish UP! Project also includes a “Demo Room” at Waterford Commons in downtown Rosemount. “People can come in and see and touch the product to help them decide,” Feldman said. “The Demo Room will be open for various booster clubs as well, but will have set hours during the week and weekend for anyone to try out the service.”
Rebecca Busho, president of the Rosemount High School Site Council, said, “Supporting RHS programs in order to enrich our school is a key purpose of the Site Council. Being able to work with FTTH to raise funds for a significant project is a unique and wonderful opportunity. We hope to make “Irish Up!” a success.”
FTTH is a local, community-based fiber optic network that provides television, telephone and ultra, high-speed internet services to customers in Rosemount and Albertville, Minn. FTTH is an acronym for Fiber To The Home.
