Will you be offering TV Service?
We do not have plans to offer TV Service in your community. However, this Fiber-To-The-Home Network will bring incredibly fast and reliable Internet Service as well as home phone service.
If I sign a contract, does that mean my price is locked for the entire time of the contract?
Yes. By signing a contract, you are entitled to receive a $10/month discount off the current price for the internet you choose, and that price is locked for 24 months!
Can I use my own modem or router?
An ONT modem will be installed as part of your internet service. There is no charge for that piece of equipment. There are currently no retail modems available on the market that will work with the FTH service, and there is no need to purchase one since you receive the ONT at no additional cost.
Customers who wish to purchase and use their own router to provide their own home WiFi service can do so. However, we recommend taking our Managed WiFi Service which offers much more than just a regular router, including 24X7 technical support and home networking app…all for only $15/month!
Can I upgrade or downgrade my Internet Service without breaking the contract?
Yes. You can upgrade or downgrade your service at any time. Each time you do so, you will enter into a new 24-Month contract.
Do you offer International Calling Plans?
Yes. We offer a wide variety of competitive International Rates. A Blue Stream Representative can help you select what’s best for you during your consultation appointment.
Do you offer TV Service? Do you offer Streaming TV services like YouTube TV or Sling TV?
