CINCINNATI -- April 24, 2013

Cincinnati Bell, the region’s leading provider of communications services for
homes and businesses, is adding the stunning new HTC One® to its 4G Android™
smartphone lineup. With a 4.7" full high-definition display, zero-gap aluminum
body design, and a 1.7GHz quad-core processor, HTC’s new flagship smartphone
features live streaming on the home screen and advanced imaging technology for
an unbeatable viewing and camera experience.

“We believe the new HTC One will have broad appeal, especially with consumers
who use a smartphone as their primary means of staying in touch with the
people and information most important to them,” said Mike Vanderwoude, senior
vice president and general manager, Consumer Markets at Cincinnati Bell. “The
HTC One sets a new standard for smartphone design and we’re excited to make it
available to our customers.”

Key features of HTC’s new flagship smartphone include HTC BlinkFeed™, HTC
UltraPixel Camera, HTC BoomSound™ and HTC Sense® TV™:

  *HTC BlinkFeed transforms the home screen into a single live stream of
    personally relevant information such as social updates, entertainment and
    lifestyle updates, news, and photos and eliminates the need to switch
    between multiple applications and web sites.
  *The HTC One’s UltraPixel camera features a best-in-class f/2.0 aperture
    and a breakthrough sensor that gathers 300 percent more light than
    traditional smartphone camera sensors to deliver outstanding low-light
    performance and other photo and video improvements.
  *HTC BoomSound introduces front-facing stereo speakers with a dedicated
    amplifier. In addition, high-definition recording uses advanced dual
    microphones and audio processing to capture clean, rich sound worthy of
    high-definition video footage.
  *HTC Sense TV transforms the HTC One into an interactive program guide and
    remote control for most TVs, set-top boxes and receivers. Sense TV makes
    it simple and intuitive to see what’s on and find favorite shows.

The HTC One from Cincinnati Bell is available for purchase through its
website, www.cincinnatibell.com/HTCOne, and in Cincinnati Bell stores.
