Cincinnati is getting gigabit internet

A handful of companies are working in the U.S. to bring gigabit internet to households in various parts of the country however it is still not widespread. Google is one of those companies. The rollout of its Fiber gigabit internet service has been slow and is limited to few cities. Folks in Cincinnati won’t have to wait long to get access to gigabit internet though. Cincinnati Bell is launching a service of its own for the average consumer. The company confirmed that it will start offering Fioptics internet speeds of up to 1 gigabit per second to consumers starting September 8th. Cincinnati Bell’s president and CEO Ted Torbeck said that the company’s Fioptics gigabit internet is up to 100 times faster than conventional broadband internet.

With support from Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley, local business and community leaders and sports personalities, Cincinnati Bell President and CEO Ted Torbeck this evening announced that the company will be offering Fioptics Internet speeds up to 1 gigabit per second to its consumer customers on September 8. “The company has a unique opportunity to give Cincinnati consumers the capability to upgrade speeds to meet their ever-changing technology needs and do so at competitive prices,” said Torbeck. Cincinnati Bell’s Fioptics Gigabit Internet speed is up to 100 times faster than normal broadband Internet. Cincinnati Bell began offering gigabit Internet service to small businesses earlier this summer. Torbeck noted that The Brandery, the small business accelerator located in Over-the-Rhine, was the first small business to receive Internet speeds up to 1 gigabit per second from Cincinnati Bell. Torbeck’s gigabit Internet service announcement is part of an overall program from the company to “Light Up Cincinnati.” Light Up Cincinnati is an initiative designed to provide Cincinnati residents and businesses with faster, more reliable and accessible services that will enable the city to grow, learn and connect with one another like never before.
