what are the known locations for cincinnati bell fioptics?

from my understanding cincinnati bell came down south following interstate 71.

We should make a list of known locations/address of fiber. I think that would help everyone.

if you don't want to reveal your full address, just the street name and zip would be useful.

i have no called timewarner 3 times in the past 2 days. I have had at least 5 techs out here to fix issues. This is for their business class. I cannot wait to dump twc and move to place that has fioptics.

to verify addresses: »www.cincinnatibell.com/fioptics/

i know that 3622 Zumstein, Cincinnati, OH 45208 is one address that has fioptics.

but where are the others?

I know it is NOT on Victor St in Clifton Heights but it is around clifton and ludlow as well as Fortune Ave and University Court.

I have been bugging them to tell me when Victor st will be wired and they never say when. I was told last year in feburary that it would be there by sept 09 but that didnt happen

Rollout seems to be really, really slow. I believe they're just concentrating on new housing developments. If the fiber running to these new developments happens to run past you you might get lucky.

They really need to ramp things up and stick it to TWC.

yeah hope they roll it out faster cause the 30mbits download and 10-20mbits upload would be sweet. i am going to be switching back to zoomtown soon, sence roadrunner is getting very congested recently i have been getting as low as 2 mbits download speeds during the 1pm-1am and often my netflix streams fail during that time also.

I can tell you it is all the way down Riddle Rd in Clifton Heights, Probasco St, Bishop St, and I think it is headed North into the Clifton Gaslight District. If my landlord wasn't a moron I would be on it right now.

Does anyone know if there is a bundle price, or what the price is to get phone and internet only? Ala-carte even? They aren't advertising a bundle like that.

Who is the contractor doing the fiber install? There have been a Van moving up and down the streets in our subdivision this week that says RL Utilities or something like that. Wondering if we are going to see fiber soon

RL Utilities (per Google search) is an underground wire and cable laying contractor. Keep your fingers crossed

I'm in Mt. Washington and Fioptics became available today. I checked the site two days ago after seeing them running the lines about 2 weeks ago. I'm not in a complex, this is residential housing availability.

I'm getting 30Mbps Internet only, $60 a month installed next Saturday. Adding local and 30 min LD would have brought it to about $95 a month.

To the person with fiops in Mount Washington: What street are you if you don't mind? I live in Anderson Township and have noticed a utility ruck on Burney between Salem and Beechmont.

Good videos. Thanks for posting them!

Regarding the Westell router: I assume they install it regardless if you have your own router because they want to cover their butt. They'll offer support with the Westell, but if you're having issues caused by your own router and the Westell is out of the loop they can say tough cookies.



fiberlicious

@fuse.net

No problem!

That makes a lot of sense with the router. I removed it and the performance remained the same- including the speed. hopefully I wont need any tech support!

Unfortunately, they don't support port forwarding on the Westell, and a tech implied that if I messed up the settings, they weren't going to bail me out.

Anyone else tried port forwarding with this router?

To atone for derail: I just had my Fioptics installed in Delhi (Lullaby subdivision off of Foley).
