Comcast pledges $100M investment in Chicago-area network improvements

Comcast (NASDAQ: CMCSA) said will invest $100 million in network improvements for both Chicago-area residential and business customers over the next three years. 

The MSO said it will bring 50 miles of cable to seven square miles of downtown Chicago including the Loop, River North and River West, making it the largest single concentrated fiber expansion in the company's history.

"Chicago is the largest metropolitan area Comcast serves. We live, work and provide service here, so these projects are more than just good business. They're an investment in the region's economic future – a future we all share," John Crowley, a Comcast senior vice president, said in a news release.
