Start with its customer service. It fails to have understandable billing, creates a new account when it changes services for customers, resulting in confusion, and make it impossible to get quick resolution of problems. For businesses, this is a horrible distraction, and loses loyalty.

Board acts like it is a good old boy Cincinnati Company, lacks forward determined ideas.

Market area is highly competitive.

This is a double play getting the infrastructure that will be valued over a billion $ by buying the cheaper stock.

I guess a ton of wheeler-dealers sold all at once, because they did not get the big bounce on a spin-off. Unless the considerably large and robust city of Cincinnati washes down the Ohio River, I can't see how you lose money on CBB at this price. Buy.

I expect this company should have folded 3 years ago. How does it even float. Bankrupt

Makes dependable money from its landline exclusivity, that business is fading but still produces earnings. Wireless business is well regarded and possibly makes the whole company a buyout candidate for any existing telecom, Verizon, Qwest, or possibly even AT&T if they can get past that whole antitrust thing... Could also split with someone like Verizon picking up the mobile business and Windstream buying out their fixed line service.

With the competition offering computer hookup, and cell phone competition, Cincinnati Bell is starting to come with them. However, I think they still a way to go.

This is one of the weakest players in the telecommunications industry. They were an alright company, when the telecom industry was slow moving and highly regulated. They have not adapted well to the deregulation many years ago and have been on a downward trend ever since. The fact that they are small does not give them a better chance for growth. In this market the growth is heading to the big players like VZ and T. If CBB had some sort of edge like Boost mobile, they maybe would have a chance, but are showing nothing standout. They do have an asset in having a local name, but that is only worth so much. The company is too small and not expected to grow fast enough in the future. This company could be a takeover candidate, but it needs to come down more from here for that to happen.

Cincy Bell is getting their act together, and I think it'll be through huge cost cutting (can you say "downsize!" again!) that they will become a true takeover target, primarily for their wireless business, or a play to divest of the $2B in debt on the wireline side and remain a regional, stand-alone, wireless player... we'll see, but something has to happen!
