Cincinnati residents will have access to gigabit internet

Beautiful cityscape  of Cincinnati

Gigabit internet is still pretty hard to come by — Google’s Fiber widening rollout is ironically slow, and mainstream providers just don’t offer it universally. Folks in southeast Ohio, at least, can rest easy: their own Cincinnati Bell is now offering fiber optic services to consumers. The company has been testing the high-speed lines with businesses since early summer, but says it’s finally ready to offer it to a wider market as part of its "Light Up Cincinnati" program starting September 8th. If you’re not a local, at least you’ll be able to take advantage of the upgrade when you visit: the company is setting up free WiFi hotpsots throughout the city, too.
