multi-duct conduit
Explanation:
See the following citations:

"...It is common for contractors to install three-way Multi-Gard multi-duct conduit, with one innerduct for cable TV, one for telephone, and one for future use..."

"...The increasing desire to blow or jet cable through long distances of duct has contributed to the development of multi-duct conduit with pre-installed innerduct..."
(both from the first web site below)

and:

"...Conduit: A pipe, usually metal, that runs underground, from floor to floor, or along a floor or ceiling to
protect cables. In the riser backbone subsystem when riser telecommunications closets are not aligned, conduit is used to protect cable and to provide the means for pulling cable from floor to floor. In the horizontal subsystem, conduit may be used between a telecommunications closet and an information outlet in an office or other room. Conduit is also ... made of PVC occasionally encased in concrete. Multiduct conduit may also be used..."
(from the second site)

Less common, but also used, is "multi-cell conduit":

" ... The polyvinyl chloride (PVC) multi-cell conduit may be furnished with innerducts ..."
