Cincinnati Bell Brings eero inc. Products to Retail Stores

11/23/16

CINCINNATI, Nov. 23, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cincinnati Bell Inc. has partnered with eero inc., creator of the first whole-home WiFi system, to provide eero products in Cincinnati Bell’s eight retail stores across Greater Cincinnati. Cincinnati Bell is the first Internet Service Provider in the country to offer eero products in its stores.

eero, a San Francisco-based company that has secured more than $90 million in venture capital funding, blankets customers’ homes in fast, reliable WiFi using multiple access points throughout the home to create a wireless mesh network that covers every corner of every room. eero allows customers to expand the system as needed through the eero app (iOS and Android Support). Over-the-air software updates give customers new features, performance improvements, and constantly improving security.

A set of three eeros will typically cover the average home (3,000-4,000 square feet) and help consumers fully maximize the Internet of Things movement that is increasingly connecting smart devices to the Internet.

Cincinnati Bell continues to build an advanced fiber network across Greater Cincinnati to support its high-speed Fioptics Internet and Entertainment services. Fioptics is now available to more than 60 percent of the region.

Christi Cornette, senior vice president of marketing at Cincinnati Bell, said providing products like eero in retail stores to help customers leverage their Fioptics high-speed Internet service is a logical step for Cincinnati Bell.

“Helping customers navigate the Internet of Things is a natural fit for Cincinnati Bell, which is committed to connecting our customers with what matters most,” said Cornette. “Cincinnati Bell is excited to partner with eero to help customers further improve their lives through technology.”
