CINCINNATI -- December 06, 2012

Cincinnati Bell Inc. (NYSE: CBB), today announced availability of the new
Windows Phone 8X by HTC. Just in time for the holidays, the high-performance
4G Windows Phone 8X smartphone is available for $199.99 after mail-in rebate.

“Today’s consumers use their smartphones for everything from checking the
latest news and weather, to sharing photos and videos, to navigation and
entertainment,” said Mike Vanderwoude, senior vice president and general
manager, Consumer Markets at Cincinnati Bell. “The Windows Phone 8X is one of
the fastest phones available on Cincinnati Bell’s 4G wireless network, and its
high level of customization delivers an unforgettable experience.”

Powered by Windows Phone 8, the 8X offers advanced camera and video
capabilities. The 8-megapixel, rear-facing camera has an illuminated lens for
improved photo quality and low-light performance. In addition, the new
extra-wide-angle lens on the front-facing camera enhances picture taking and
video chatting. An HD camcorder captures video in 1080p.

The heart and soul of Windows Phone 8 is Live Tiles. Exclusive to Windows
Phone, Live Tiles lets people personalize the Start screen by pinning their
favorite people, apps, music, games, photos and more. Three sizes of Live
Tiles and 20 bright color choices including cobalt, crimson and lime mean
customers can personalize the Start screen to be unmistakably theirs.

In addition, Windows Phone is the only phone with a People Hub, where
customers can find their contacts, start conversations (phone, text, IM,
email), check out their friends’ latest posts and photos, get to Rooms and
Groups, or even make a Skype call from a contact card.

The vivid 4.3-inch, high-definition, 720p display screen of the 8X is clear
and colorful with exceptional clarity. Beats Audio™ delivers studio-quality
sound with deeper bass, crisper vocals, and detailed high notes whether
listening to music, watching a YouTube™ video, or playing a game.

The Windows Phone 8X measures 5.2 inches by 2.6 inches by 0.39 inches (132.1
mm by 66 mm by 9.9 mm) and weighs just 4.58 ounces, or 130 grams. Key features
