HOUSTON -- May 15, 2012

CyrusOne, a wholly owned subsidiary of Cincinnati Bell (NYSE: CBB) and
preeminent enterprise data center colocation solutions provider, breaks ground
tomorrow, on the 57-acre parcel of land it purchased in Chandler, Ariz., last
fall. The site will house a 1-million-square-foot Massively Modular^TM data
center expected to deliver scale, power, efficiencies and amenities
never-before-seen in multi-tenant facilities market.

“We are confident that CyrusOne's innovative design paired with the excellent
operating environment the Phoenix market offers is an ideal combination for
delivering the high-density, mission critical solutions we've become known
for, at a scale unmatched by our competitors," said Kevin Timmons, chief
technology officer, CyrusOne. “In total, we’re delivering a cost-competitive
alternative for our California clientele looking to secure company data away
from the earthquakes and other natural disasters experienced there.”

Planned for completion the first part of 2013, the data center is expected to
become the largest of its kind in the country with 110 megawatts of power
capacity, delivered from a substation to be built on the property. The
company’s Massively Modular^TM design delivers industry-leading energy
optimization and just-in-time inventory to meet customer demand. The Massively
Modular^TM approach enables CyrusOne to commission large data center
facilities in approximately 16 weeks, beating the deployment capabilities of
the data center in a box solutions currently being marketed by competitors.

“We are differentiating ourselves in how we bring our products to market, and
with the products themselves. In comparison to other facilities in Phoenix,
the immense scale and modularity of CyrusOne’s facility delivers unmatched
economic benefits to customers. Its location with respect to power and fiber
infrastructure access ensures customer confidence, and the best-in-class
office space keeps our customers comfortable while they work, including
amenities such as an espresso bar,” said Timmons. “There’s nothing else like
it in the industry.”

The groundbreaking comes on the heels of an industry peer review session the
CyrusOne executive team hosted in late April. There were interactive sessions
with the general contractor, architecture firm, and CyrusOne mechanical and
electrical engineers engaged for the Chandler project, in an effort to further
optimize the facility design plan.
