The Ohio Bell Telephone Company is the Bell Operating Company serving most of Ohio. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of AT&T.

Its headquarters is the Ohio Bell Building at 750 Huron Road, Cleveland, Ohio. Ohio Bell is not affiliated with Cincinnati Bell, which serves Cincinnati, Dayton and other surrounding communities.

After the 1984 Bell System Divestiture, Ohio Bell became a part of Ameritech, one of the seven original Regional Bell Operating Companies. The Ohio Bell name continued to be used until January 1993, when Ameritech dropped all of its individual Bell Operating Company names in favor of its corporate name for marketing purposes.

After SBC acquired Ameritech in 2002, SBC dropped the Ameritech name in favor of "SBC" as a national brand. On January 15, 2006, after SBC's acquisition of AT&T, Ohio Bell's legal name was changed to The Ohio Bell Telephone Company d/b/a AT&T Ohio.

After being held by AT&T (pre-1984), Ameritech, and SBC, as of 2005, it is now part of the "new" AT&T.
