Utah: CeriStar to deploy FTTH in planned community near St. George

"CeriStar, Inc., a premier IP (Internet Protocol) Triple Play Communications services Provider, reported today that the company has been selected as the exclusive service provider of Triple Play communications services to the SunRiver St. George development, an "active adult" community with a planned 2,200 homes.

Under the ten-year exclusive agreement, CeriStar will provide residents in SunRiver with integrated Triple Play communications services over Fiber-to-the-Premise (FTTP). Integrated communications services will include a robust IP telephony package (VoIP), ultra high-speed Internet connectivity, broadcast and IP entertainment services such as HDTV, video-on-demand, games-on-demand, and security services. CeriStar will also manage quality of service (QoS) and provide customer service and billing, as well as integration, engineering and management support for the SunRiver project and for the network. Based on the company's current residential service model, CeriStar anticipates receiving $80-120 in recurring monthly service revenues from each household in SunRiver."

Update:Om Malik has some comments on CeriStar's business model in his GigaOM weblog.
