All You Can Talk is Nothing New for Cincinnati Bell Wireless

CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 20, 2008--Unlimited wireless rate plans are hitting newswires across the country, but this liberating calling feature is nothing new to the Greater Cincinnati and Dayton areas. Cincinnati Bell Inc. (NYSE:CBB) has served its Cincinnati Bell Wireless customers with affordable unlimited nationwide plans since 2004.

"Cincinnati Bell's close proximity to our market gives us a competitive edge in understanding customer needs. We recognized in 2004 that it was essential for our customers to have a comprehensive wireless calling plan that provided unlimited talking freedom," said Eric Schimpf, general manager of Cincinnati Bell Wireless. "For those customers who do not need the unlimited usage, we also offer a program unmatched in the marketplace - $59 for 2,000 minutes. That is twice the minutes offered by the competition for about the same cost. More choices, better rates, no contracts and the best wireless network clearly differentiate Cincinnati Bell from its competitors."

Unlimited calling plans start at $99.99 with the option of adding unlimited text and data/mobile Internet for $14.99 per month or unlimited BlackBerry Internet for $29.99 per month.
