Cincinnati Bell capitalizes on enterprise, wireless operator dark fiber interest

Cincinnati Bell has broken ranks with the large telcos in the dark fiber race, offering the service on a case-by-case basis to a growing group of enterprise and wireless operator customers.

While medium businesses have yet to take advantage of dark fiber, Cincinnati Bell has seen large enterprises ask for the medium as a way to not only extend their presence in harder to reach areas, but also control their own service and provisioning destiny. The telco is also considering extending dark fiber to address opportunities outside of its traditional ILEC territory.
