Commitment to Digital Equity

Digital equity is important, now more than ever

CBTS is committed to digital equity that allows all individuals and communities to have the information technology capacity needed for full participation in our society, economy, and democracy.

In this time of work-from-home and learn-from-home environment, connectivity is more important than ever.

“In order to serve the community, you always want to focus on what you are good at. Providing connectivity is what we are good at. It is incumbent upon us to bridge the divide and close the digital equity gap.”

Leigh Fox
President & CEO of Cincinnati Bell and CBTS

Connect Our Students

Did you know that 21% of students are unable to complete their homework because they do not have access to a computer? And 22% will have to find public Wi-Fi to do their schoolwork? This poses a challenge for not only children and their families, but our collective community.

Cincinnati Bell launched the “Connect Our Students” program with Greater Cincinnati Foundation and United Way of Greater Cincinnati to provide free Internet service to those families and students in need.

Partnership with Butler Rural Electric Cooperative (BREC)

Now, more than ever, high-speed Internet and Wi-Fi connectivity are an increasingly powerful engine for continued innovation and economic growth as well as our day-to-day life. Cincinnati Bell understands that we will have to collaborate with local business and public partners to close the digital equity gap in our region. The partnership with BREC demonstrates to the rest of the nation what a public-private partnership can accomplish to provide a critical service to the under-served population.
