Comcast Business Has Installed MTGs at 50+ Chicago-Area Properties

Comcast Business said more than 50 commercial, residential and mixed-use properties across the Chicago area have deployed its Multi-Tenant Gateway (MTG) solution. MTGs allow property managers to quickly deliver high-quality fiber connectivity services to their tenants.

MTGs can be wired into existing buildings, refurbished spaces and new builds. Once an MTG is installed, property managers can deliver fiber services onsite in a matter of weeks rather than months, says Comcast.

In 2019, Comcast Business was the first internet service provider to connect an advanced network to 601W Cos.’ Old Post Office in downtown Chicago’s West Loop. The site, which had just completed an $800-million renovation, now has multiple MTGs operating onsite to support tenants.

“Comcast Business installed three MTGs at The Old Post Office, which saved us from having to add fiber connections for each new tenant,” said Bryan Oyster, VP and GM for The Old Post Office.
