Cincinnati Bell lights up Cincinnati community square with fiber

Cincinnati Bell has found that its Fioptics Fiber to the Home (FTTH) product set has utility beyond the consumer's home as the Cincinnati Center City Development Corporation (3CDC) named the service provider as its primary provider of digital TV and high speed Internet connectivity in Cincinnati's Fountain Square area.

The service provider will provide these services for the Fountain Square video message board, which will carry local and national newscasts, sporting events and other programming for people visiting the Square.

While a bit later to the game than its larger ILEC counterparts (Verizon), Cincinnati Bell has made continual progress with its FTTH network. Since launching the Fioptics service last year--primarily targeting single-family and multi dwelling units (MDUs)--the service is available to about 50,000 households throughout its Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky network footprints.
