Net2Phone wins broadband over powerline voice deal with Cincinnati Communications

Broadband over Power Line (BPL) is alive and well in Cincinnati, as evidenced by the fact that Cincinnati Communications has deployed Net2Phone's voice technology over its BPL service in the Ohio city's market.

While not necessarily a cable company, Cincinnati Communications is damned competitive. It bills itself as an "always on" Internet access connection for customers who plug computers into existing power outlets or small businesses that use a special power line modem. Now, via Net2Phone, it's adding voice to the data service.

The move to a centrally managed voice plan will also enable Cincinnati Communications to enter and compete in the "high-revenue business services market," said Thom Jordan, president of Net2Phone Telephony, in a news release.
