PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Comcast today announced that Madison Apartment Group, a national leader in apartment property management, is leveraging XFINITY’s Advanced Communities Network (ACN) to provide 25 of its properties with some of the most cutting-edge technology services available in the market. More than 6,000 residents in Philadelphia, Atlanta, Memphis, Lenexa, Harrisburg and other towns across the U.S. will be able to take advantage of ultra-fast Internet and WiFi speeds, reliable digital phone service and next-generation video capabilities via XFINITY X1.
Headquartered in Philadelphia and with properties extending across the East Coast and Midwest, Madison Apartment Group offers an array of innovative resident services, flexible lease terms, a 24/7 national call center and dedicated management teams at each of its communities. Many Madison Apartment Group properties have been freshly rehabilitated, with completely renovated units, common spaces and amenities – one of the most important of which is access to the latest technology services to ensure that residents are connected virtually anywhere within the building.
“People today choose apartments based on how well the technology services match their increasingly connected lifestyles, so being able to mirror the same services they would receive if they owned their own home is a critical competitive differentiator for us,” said Dean Holmes, chief operating officer for Madison Apartment Group. “Comcast is giving our residents cutting-edge TV, Internet, WiFi and phone services alongside virtually unparalleled customer service, which has allowed us to focus on other aspects of the resident experience instead of worrying about our technology infrastructure. We are constantly acquiring new properties, and Comcast’s vast network means it can accommodate us virtually anywhere we go, both today and well into the future.”
As part of this agreement, many of these Madison Apartment Group properties have committed to a 10-year collaboration with Comcast that allows residents to choose the technology package that works best for them. XFINITY Internet offers capacity that scales from 50 Megabits-per-second (Mbps) to gigabit speeds, XFINITY WiFi ensures connectivity within individual units and common areas, and XFINITY Voice offers the latest in digital phone services. XFINITY X1 features a one-of-a-kind interactive experience that includes thousands of hit movies and the latest TV shows on-demand, as well as apps that let residents share personal photos, videos and much more.
In addition to delivering the full suite of XFINITY services, Comcast also provides XFINITY Communities residents and staff with a single point of contact for customer service and account management. These dedicated community account representatives (CARs) can help coordinate installations, troubleshoot disruptions, process service changes and assist with move-in, move-out and property transfers.
“Today’s residents bring numerous Internet-enabled devices alongside high expectations for pervasive, fast wireless connectivity, so an increasing number of multifamily property owners are finding that responding to these demands with flexible technology offerings is critical to both satisfying existing residents and attracting new ones,” said Michael Slovin, vice president, XFINITY Communities. “Our Advanced Communities Network puts these properties ahead of the curve to not only impress the residents of today, but also to meet the gigabit demands of tomorrow, and we look forward to bringing these services to even more leading-edge building owners and property managers across the country.”
Comcast’s XFINITY Communities unit launched its Advanced Communities Network specifically for multifamily properties. By providing move-in-ready fiber and coax connectivity solutions to existing buildings, greenfields, high-rises and single-family home communities, XFINITY is able to accommodate capacity demands of up to gigabit speeds while virtually eliminating the hassle of retrofitting current wiring. In addition to fast Internet speeds, ACN powers the full portfolio of XFINITY products, including its innovative XFINITY X1, America’s fastest Internet, the fastest in-home WiFi, XFINITY Home security and automation, and digital voice.
