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.
They have service available in the bridgetown and Cheviot areas. I would suggest signing up if anybody is able to get it.
TV service is ultra clear and the internet is solid as could be. For internet I have the 30/10Mbps package and with the speed test's I've ran even during peak times I get my advertised speeds. Pings are even low around 5ms.
Well I can't wait any longer for Fioptics to make it to my area of Ft. Wright. It breaks my heart but I'm going to have to call Insight in order to get faster internet than my current Zoomtown. I bet I still wont get number like you guys are reporting.
TW does have a chance as long as CBT continues to drag their feet on rollout. It just gives TW more time to move to DOCSIS 3.0 speeds. What good is it if only a very insignificant portion of the tri-state has access to the fiber service? They need to start running it down every street they can quickly and stop worrying about the ROI. They'll get their money back and then some if they can steal TW customers left, right and center. That won't happen though if they don't ramp up rollout to the nth degree.
Re: what are the known locations for cincinnati bell fioptics?
Sorry Ya'al but if you are waiting for Cincinnati Bell to respond to your emails you will be waiting a while. They don't respond (Jason is one, but no one else does either) but they want to pretend like they care.
My advise to anyone who cares....If you are happy with what you have now, stick with it. I can only recommend switching if you are pissed at your current service provider.
I got tired of waiting for Fioptics so I signed up with InSight 10mb this week- it tripled my Zoomtown/Fuse speed. Nice. If it save me money, I'll probably go back to Cin Bell when Fioptics gets to my area of Ft. Wright.
Looks like they're running it up Thomas Drive here in Madeira (so far it's from the bottom of Thomas to Dee Street). They've got the new boxes hanging up on the lines right next to the old phone ones. Saw the contractor bucket trucks working on it this past week. It's already run into downtown Madeira and available. Guess they'll be branching out to side streets (to get to Thomas they took Laurel off Miami). I'm at the top of Thomas on Maple Leaf right by the Elementary school. Hopefully they'll get it run up here quickly.
Same deal here. CB sent me an email telling me about "Great news" that ZT Max was now available to me...10/768k for $10 more per month. I'm a Charter Member meaning I've had ZT since it was available and at the end of 2010 this is the best they could come up with?
I immediately called Insight and in 2 days I'll have their new 50.0 service (50/5). I can't see myself going back to CB even if/when they offer fiber here. They've treated their customer base too poorly for too long.
Trucks came through today (or rather Sunday since I posted this after midnight) and installed the breakout boxes up on the line. Should be live here shortly. I was surprised they were out working on a Sunday and so late (late afternoon to evening), but the contractor probably has a deadline to meet. They even had canopies over their buckets to help shield from the cold/wind.
