CINCINNATI, Nov. 23, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cincinnati Bell Inc. has partnered with eero inc., creator of the first whole-home WiFi system, to provide eero products in Cincinnati Bell's eight retail stores across Greater Cincinnati. Cincinnati Bell is the first Internet Service Provider in the country to offer eero products in its stores. eero, a San Francisco-based company that has secured more than $90 million in venture capital funding, blankets customers' homes in fast, reliable WiFi using multiple access points throughout the home to create a wireless mesh network that covers every corner of every room. eero allows customers to expand the system as needed through the eero app (iOS and Android Support).
