Fioptics Boosts Cincinnati Bell Revenues

  • Cincinnati Bell
CINCINNATI - Cincinnati Bell's Fioptics suite of products added a record-high 5,600 new entertainment subscribers and 6,100 high-speed Internet subscribers in the second quarter 2013 and generated revenue of $24 million, up 50 percent compared to the prior year. Cincinnati Bell passed an additional 33,000 addresses with Fioptics during the first half of 2013, and was able to maintain a 28 percent customer penetration rate. The company is now able to provide Fioptics service to approximately 30 percent of Greater Cincinnati.

While the growth from Fioptics was offset by losses in postpaid wireless subscribers and access lines the company is optimistic about fiber-based growth. “The impressive growth trends achieved to date from our Fioptics suite of services continue to meet our expectations and speak to the superior quality of the product,” said Kurt Freyberger, chief financial officer. “Fioptics financial results have contributed to a strong performance by the company for the first half of 2013, providing momentum into the second half of the year.”

Fioptics revenue totaled $24 million in the quarter, a 50 percent increase compared to the second quarter of 2012. Year to date, the company has passed 33,000 additional homes and businesses with its Fioptics network, ending the quarter with a total of 238,000 units passed. The company ended the quarter with 67,000 Fioptics high-speed internet subscribers, up 42 percent compared to the end of the second quarter of 2012. Fioptics entertainment subscribers were up 36 percent compared to the second quarter of 2012 and totaled 63,000 at June 30, 2013.

The company’s Fioptics product suite now passes 238,000 residential and business addresses. The segment ended the quarter with 67,000 Fioptics high-speed internet subscribers and 63,000 entertainment subscribers, up 42 percent and 36 percent, respectively, compared to the second quarter in 2012.
