  • Cincinnati Bell

CINCINNATI - Cincinnati Bell, a telecommunications and broadband networking services, announced that it has established a strategic partnership with The Brandery to provide up to 1 Gigabit Internet speed to the business accelerator. The partnership will make The Brandery the only Top 10 startup accelerator in the U.S with a fiber partner and the first 1 Gigabit small business customer in the Cincinnati Bell network.

In addition to providing data and voice to The Brandery, Cincinnati Bell also will provide voice and data service to members of The Brandery's 2014 class who remain in Cincinnati upon graduation, and Cincinnati Bell employees will volunteer as mentors to Brandery teams.

Removing Speed and Connectivity Barriers
"Cincinnati Bell is committed to supporting small businesses in our community," said Dave Heimbach, chief operating officer of Cincinnati Bell. "We want to remove as many barriers as possible - two of those being speed and connectivity - and this partnership will do just that. Our Fioptics gigabit Internet speed provides a great foundation for accelerating new ideas, productivity and business development."

Heimbach added that in 2014 Cincinnati Bell is investing more than $80 million in its fiber network to support its customers.

"Cincinnati Bell's commitment to fiber is vital to fully reaching the entrepreneurial potential of our region," said The Brandery Co-Founder Dave Knox. "Through this partnership, The Brandery will be able to offer our startups unmatched speed, as well as a technology partner who is fully invested in the future of their businesses."

Cincinnati Bell estimates that the fiber speed will be turned on to The Brandery offices on Vine Street in Over-The-Rhine in late June, just in time for the start of The Brandery's 2014 class.

Fioptics gigabit Internet speed, which is 100 times faster than average broadband speeds, is available to select customers today from Cincinnati Bell. After The Brandery installation, this speed will be available to multiple tenant business units by the end of the second quarter. It will be made available generally to business and consumer customers by the end of the third quarter.
