Cincinnati Bell Inc. operates as a full-service regional provider of entertainment, data and voice communications services through wireline and wireless networks. The company also operates as a provider of managed and professional information technology services, and a reseller of information technology (IT) and telephony equipment. Segments As of December 31, 2013, the company operated three segments: Wireline, IT Services and Hardware, and Wireless. Wireline segment This segment provides products and services, such as local voice, high-speed Internet, data transport, long distance, entertainment, VoIP, and other services. Cincinnati Bell Telephone Company LLC (CBT), a subsidiary of the company, is the incumbent local exchange carrier (ILEC) for a geography that covers a radius of approximately 25 miles around Cincinnati, Ohio, and includes parts of northern Kentucky and southeastern Indiana. This segment also provides voice and data services beyond its ILEC territory, particularly in Dayton and Mason, Ohio, through the operations of Cincinnati Bell Extended Territories LLC (CBET), a competitive local exchange carrier (CLEC) and subsidiary of CBT. This segment provides long distance and VoIP services primarily through its Cincinnati Bell Any Distance Inc. (CBAD) and eVolve Business Solutions LLC (eVolve) subsidiaries. The company continues the expansion of Fioptics, which is designed to compete directly with the cable Multiple System Operators (MSO) serving the company’s ILEC market area. Fioptics covers approximately 276,000 customer locations. The major products and services provided by the Wireline segment include the following: Voice - Local Service Voice local service revenue includes local service, digital trunking, switched access, information services, and other value-added services, such as caller identification, voicemail, call waiting, and call return. The company's voice access lines continue to decrease as its customers have increasingly employed wireless technologies in lieu of wireline voice services (wireless substitution), have migrated to competitors, or have been disconnected due to credit problems. This segment has been able to increasingly offset the effect of access line loss on revenue by bundling two or more of the company's other services at a lower price than if they are purchased individually; expanding the Fioptics network; which creates attach rates of approximately 65% when Fioptics services and products are bundled with voice access lines; and increasing the sale of VoIP services and other fiber-based products to business customers (reported under the caption Long Distance and VoIP). Data Services The company's data service products include high-speed Internet access, data transport, and interconnection services. As customers migrate from legacy products and network technology, its metro-ethernet product becomes the access method of choice, due to its ability to support multiple applications on a single physical connection. The company continues to build out fiber to MTU's in greater Cincinnati to meet growing demand for these services. The company is also expanding its metro-ethernet platform to deliver services across a geography to target business customers beyond its ILEC footprint. The company’s regional network connects the greater Cincinnati, Columbus, and Dayton areas in Ohio, as well as Indianapolis, Indiana; Chicago, Illinois; and Louisville, Kentucky. Long Distance and VoIP Residential and business customers electing traditional long-distance lines could choose from various long distance plans, which include unlimited long distance for a flat fee, purchase of minutes at a per-minute-of-use rate, or a fixed number of minutes for a flat fee. The company has been investing in its next-generation VoIP network. This investment has created a platform capable of supporting various customers ranging from small shops to large enterprise customers. Its VoIP products provide its customers access to disbursed communication platforms and access to its cloud based services and hosted unified communications product. Entertainment The company of
