Re: what are the known locations for cincinnati bell fioptics?

I have it in Withamsville @ Carriage Station Townhomes off of 125. I have the 30/10 speed. Just noticed on their website that they now offer 50/10 and 100/20 speeds. Time Warner doesn't have a chance.

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.

3301 Colerain Ave (Machine Flats Lofts) in Camp Washington has Fioptics and it blows away TWC. Only problem is no IFC or Sundance Channel.

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.

Stevengm,

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.

Getting it installed this Monday Going with telephone and 20/5 service (promo to get 20/5 at the 10/2 price) for $59.99 per month before the goofy fees and taxes. Will only cost $.01 more than what we're paying now for POTS and Zoomtown (2.64Mbps).

A new Commerce Department web site lets users see where broadband is on a map. You can choose to only show specified technologies. Since I think on FiOptics is the only fiber to the home in the area this should show us what areas it's available in. Check this out and zoom into Cincinnati: »www.broadbandmap.gov/technology/···end-user.
