Comcast Business expanded its advanced network infrastructure in three southwest suburban Chicago communities: Joliet, Lockport and Tinley Park. The new fiber will reach business areas stretching along West Prologis Parkway and Smith Road in Lockport, Terry Drive and Route 6 in Joliet and 191st Street and South Harlem Avenue in Tinley Park.
With the expansion complete, Comcast can provide the three area’s small, medium and large businesses access to Internet speeds up to 10 Gigabits per second (Gbps) – and up to 100 Gbps on a case-by-case basis, along with numerous Comcast Business services.
“With more and more employees working at home and e-commerce growing rapidly in the COVID era, fast, reliable connectivity is more important now than ever,” said Joliet Mayor Bob O’Dekirk. “Access to some of the fastest internet speeds and most advanced technology services on the market will help area businesses compete regionally and nationally and expand.”
