Litestream, a Florida-based telecommunications provider focused on delivering Internet, cable television and voice services to private communities, has partnered with Lennar Homes to provide services to its new neighborhoods in Palencia North, a master-planned community located off US 1 in St. Augustine.

Litestream is currently in the process of building and launching upgraded phone service, Internet speeds and more. The cable company has also implemented Ready Connect in the community, a convenient, proactive process enabling new homeowners to be connected immediately. With Ready Connect, the company activates two outlets—typically in the master bedroom and family room—so homeowners will have television, phone and Internet service the day the move in.

“Our goal is to always provide our customers with the very best customer service. With that in mind, we wanted to simplify the moving process,” said Litestream CEO Bill Haggarty. “We understand moving into a new home can be challenging, especially for families with children. With Ready Connect families can take advantage of Litestream services instead of waiting for a technician to come in and install and activate outlets throughout the home.”

Palencia residents have easy access to Florida beaches, outdoor activities at Deep Creek State Park and health care at the Mayo Clinic, in addition to the shopping, dining and entertainment of downtown historic St. Augustine. The community is anchored by The Palencia Club, which features a 33,000-square-foot clubhouse and Arthur Hills-designed championship golf course. Lennar homeowners will have full use of Palencia’s world-class amenities that include 10 tennis courts, four swimming pools, a state-of-the-art fitness center, spa services, soccer and baseball fields and a regulation-sized basketball court. Families with children will enjoy the Pirate Playground, Family Picnic Pavilion and eight miles of nature trails.

About Litestream

Formed in 1999, Litestream set out immediately to be a new kind of cable company—one that is completely committed to understanding the needs of customers and exceeding their expectations, while providing a complete line of value-added services. Since its inception, Litestream has grown to become a leading provider of high definition (HD) video, high-speed Internet, and digital phone services to private and gated communities in Florida.

In 2012, the company completed installation of a new master television reception and distribution center, also known as a headend. The state-of-the-art signal receiving and processing center is one of the most advanced in the state and receives television programming for digital channels—many in HD—and distributes them to Litestream customers throughout Florida over a fiber optic network, allowing the company to serve communities statewide. Built to withstand hurricanes and natural disasters, its design is scalable and adaptable for expanded future need.

Together, the Litestream management team has over 130 years of cable industry experience, including all phases from construction to customer service. For more information, call 877-212-4744 or visit
