The City of Wyoming is proud to announce a partnership with Cincinnati Bell to realize a “Smart City” vision and bring free public Wi-Fi to Wyoming as part of a broader effort to ignite economic growth. In partnership with Wyoming, Cincinnati Bell has installed a Smart City solution with Wi-Fi coverage in the central business district, the village green, and Crescent Park. The community may log on through a splash page at “Wyoming Free Wi-Fi.” This economic development project will allow Wyoming to connect with, engage, and inform visitors and residents; drive more activity and visits; and ultimately help the local business community thrive. Wyoming is the first small city in Hamilton County to implement a Smart City solution. The City is partnering with Cincinnati Bell, which has implemented other Smart City solutions in the region and has invested approximately $1 billion into its Greater Cincinnati fiber network. Cincinnati Bell will leverage this unique expertise to help the City of Wyoming Smart City vision.

“The City of Wyoming’s goal is to utilize the Smart City technology to provide a quicker recovery post Covid-19. We want to better engage our visitors and residents by providing seamless event navigation, calendar updates, latest news in parks and recreation, restaurant and retail specials and deals, maps and walking directions, and DORA (Designated Outdoor Refreshment Area) guidelines and mapping boundaries,” said Lynn Tetley, The City of Wyoming City Manager."

Cincinnati Bell has been connecting businesses and customers for more than 140 years, and our Wi-Fi and Smart City partnership with the City of Wyoming continues this tradition,” said Jason Praeter, President of Cincinnati Bell’s Entertainment & Communications business. “Connectivity is particularly critical given the challenges we are facing as a community, and Cincinnati Bell is proud to be working with leadership from the City of Wyoming on this important economic development initiative."
