CINCINNATI--Cincinnati Bell has launched a pilot program that will deliver 2 gigabit Internet to a select number of consumer addresses. Cincinnati Bell will use learnings from the 2 gigabit Internet pilot program to eventually expand the offering across its fiber-to-the home footprint in Greater Cincinnati.

Cincinnati Bell is one of the first ISPs nationwide to offer a 2 Gbps solution. The 2 Gbps service will cost $299 a month. The provider will continue to offer additional tiers of fiber-based broadband access, starting at $44.99 a month.

Cincinnati Bell has invested more than $1 billion into building a fiber network across Greater Cincinnati since 2010, and is expanding the network to additional addresses every year. Through the end of the third quarter, Cincinnati Bell was able to deliver fiber to the home to approximately 500,000 addresses. Cincinnati Bell’s goal is to build fiber to the majority of addresses in Greater Cincinnati, and leverage wireless solutions to bring high-speed Internet to the remaining areas.

Cincinnati Bell launched 1 Gbps Internet in 2014 to support the demand for connectivity, which is growing at an exponential rate every year. The 2 Gbps service continues Cincinnati Bell’s ongoing innovation in the fast-changing technology space as part of the company’s commitment to providing future-proof technology solutions throughout Greater Cincinnati.

“The introduction of 2 gigabit Internet is another important milestone in our commitment to provide Greater Cincinnati with networking solutions that are necessary to access jobs, educational opportunities, and healthcare resources,” said Tom Simpson, Cincinnati Bell Inc.’s Chief Operating Officer. “As we build out our fiber network, we are simultaneously investing in technologies to fully leverage that network and deliver cutting-edge connectivity to our customers.”
