The past year has highlighted the importance of connectivity and collaboration technologies. It has also demonstrated the importance of supporting customers and the communities we serve during challenging times.

Why Ohio?
CBTS will grow in Cincinnati with the help of JobsOhio. The company has long-term ties to Ohio and will continue to offer its services to those who need it most. Ohio’s affordable, quality technology talent pool, currently over 295k professionals, is key to CBTS’s services.

The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the need to provide reliable internet access to all Ohioans. JobsOhio recognizes this need and has been working in alignment with the DeWine Administration on a significant expansion of broadband coverage throughout Ohio. The support of CBTS aligns with this priority.

Cincinnati Bell and CBTS employees in 2020 raised more than $80,000 to support schools across its footprint to help ensure that students and their families had access to healthy meals, educational materials, and hygiene kits when schools closed. The company also launched a partnership with multiple organizations in Greater Cincinnati to bring low-cost internet to thousands of K-12 students who lacked connectivity in what has increasingly become a virtual learning world.
