03/09/09
Customers Can Build a Bundle and Lock in the Price for Life
CINCINNATI & DAYTON, Ohio, Mar 09, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Cincinnati Bell Inc. (NYSE: CBB) today created a new standard for communications companies by providing a new and unique value in telecommunications services.

The company's "Priced For Life" program allows customers to eliminate price increases by establishing a permanent monthly rate for a bundle of communications services without a contract. Priced For Life is available to both current and new customers who bundle two or more of the following Cincinnati Bell services - home phone with custom-calling features and long distance, ZoomTown(TM) high-speed Internet, or wireless.

"Priced For Life gives customers peace of mind by eliminating the surprise of price increases, not just for a year or two but for life," said Jack Cassidy, president and chief executive officer of Cincinnati Bell. "We asked current and prospective customers what they thought about this concept and their response was overwhelming. The Priced For Life program gives people what they want - certainty and control over the monthly cost of service fees."

Priced For Life is Cincinnati Bell's price assurance to its loyal customers. With the Priced For Life program, a bundle customer can hold the monthly service fee constant at the current rate as long as the customer maintains the current level of services at the current residence. In addition, Cincinnati Bell provides this price assurance without a contract. Some add-on features, federal and state taxes, surcharges and fees are not covered by the Priced For Life bundle program.1

Priced For Life is available throughout Cincinnati Bell's Greater Cincinnati and Dayton service area. For more information call 513-565-9730 in Cincinnati or 1-866-658-9291 in Dayton, visit any Cincinnati Bell retail store, or go to www.priced4life.com or www.cincinnatibell.com/priced4life.
