BGP Enabled transit in Chicago (River North) and equipment recommendation

Iâ??ve had BGP from comcast business in River North before, not sure what their minimum bandwidth is for that. Tunnels may be simplest at that bandwidth level.

Hardware routers for 100 Mbit egress seem a bit overpowered, however, as scaleable you want to go, some Ubiquiti routers might be a cheap option.
