CINCINNATI -- May 28, 2013

Offering a smarter experience that continuously adapts to a customer’s needs,
the BlackBerry Z10 has a high-resolution 4.2-inch display, an all-touch
keyboard that learns what words you use and how you use them, then offers them
up to you so you can type faster and more accurately, and front and rear HD
cameras – the latter being an 8-megapixel camera that records 1080p HD video.
Cincinnati Bell is also the first carrier to launch the BlackBerry Z10 with
the BlackBerry 10.1 operating system update, offering an improved camera,
enhanced notifications, and more.

"Our customers depend on us to provide them with the best devices to suit
their needs at a cost they can afford, and the BlackBerry 10 products allow us
to do just that," said Mike Vanderwoude, senior vice president and general
manager of consumer markets at Cincinnati Bell. "In addition to the powerful
new BlackBerry 10 platform, our Cincinnati Bell network and service plans
deliver a truly reinvented communication experience.”

The BlackBerry Z10 is the first smartphone to come with the redesigned,
re-engineered and reinvented BlackBerry 10 platform that creates a powerful
and unique new mobile computing experience. Every feature, every gesture, and
every detail is designed to keep customers moving and includes advancements
such as:

  *Peek and Flow into the BlackBerry Hub – A new mobile computing paradigm
    where what matters to customers is always one swipe away
  *Keyboard – Understands and adapts to customers, so they can type faster
    and more accurately
  *BBM™ (BlackBerry® Messenger) – Allows customers to share anything in an
    instant with the people who matter to them
  *BlackBerry® Balance™ technology – Helps give users peace of mind that
    their privacy is respected while their sensitive work information is
    protected.

The BlackBerry Z10 will be the first BlackBerry 10 product offered by
Cincinnati Bell, followed by a July 2013 launch of the BlackBerry Q10, which
features a physical QWERTY keyboard. For details regarding the BlackBerry Q10
launch, visit www.cincinnatibell.com/Q10.

The BlackBerry Z10 from Cincinnati Bell is now available for purchase through
its website, www.cincinnatibell.com/Z10 and in Cincinnati Bell stores.
