Cincinnati Bell Asks "Why Pay For Two?"


New plan allows customers to pay once for Internet access on smartphone and at home

CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 31, 2009-- Leveraging its ability to deliver high-speed Internet service on smartphones and at home, Cincinnati Bell Inc. (NYSE: CBB) today announced a revolutionary program designed around one simple question: “Why Pay For Two?”

Cincinnati Bell’s WhyPayForTwo plan delivers unlimited Internet access and text messaging on a smartphone and ZoomTown high-speed Internet access at home for $39.99 a month – a price the competition charges for just one service.

According to Cincinnati Bell President and CEO Jack Cassidy, the appeal of WhyPayForTwo is simplicity. “Today’s consumer uses the Internet at home and on the go to check e-mail, post updates on social media sites and browse the Web. We believe there’s only one Internet and consumers shouldn’t pay twice to connect to it. With WhyPayForTwo, Cincinnati Bell delivers Internet access on a smartphone and at home at half the price. It’s as simple as that.”

Unlike other companies, Cincinnati Bell is the only carrier in Greater Cincinnati that offers high-speed Internet access via a smartphone and at home.
