About Blue Stream Fiber
Blue Stream Fiber is providing a state-of-the-art fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) system in Port St. Lucie, Florida delivering a Quad-Play of High-Speed Internet, Cable TV, Telephone and Security Alarm Monitoring. We have a Cable TV Franchise from the City of Port St Lucie. We picked Port St. Lucie because it is one of the fastest growing communities in the U.S. Port St. Lucie is located about 35 miles north of Palm Beach County.
Blue Stream Fiber is positioned to become a leading fiber-to-the-premises (“FTTP”) system with a packaged offering of services (including cable TV and high-speed Internet). Blue Stream Fiber obtained a Cable TV Franchise and proceeded to construct a multi-million dollar, state-of-the-art Central Office/Headend and fiber-based delivery system in Port St. Lucie. The Company’s facility is located in the middle of 50,000 acres of developable land. To date, Blue Stream Fiber has contracts to provide cable TV, high-speed Internet, and security alarm monitoring service to approximately 30,000 existing and future customers in several master-planned communities in the Port St. Lucie area and also serves individual customers.
FTTP provides increased bandwidth to each home, which is capable of delivering hundreds of television channels. In addition to this broadband delivery capacity, FTTP provides greater system reliability and expandability, lower maintenance costs and longer life cycles than coaxial or “fiber-to-the-curb”-based systems.
Blue Stream Fiber provides basic cable television and high-speed Internet, and provides additional services including, but not limited to, Telephone, T-1 connectivity, Pay TV (HBO, Showtime, etc.), additional tiers of cable TV programming services, interactive services, and video-on-demand (“VOD”) to residential and commercial customers.
