When I lived in an apartment in Hillsborough, they did something like
this for cable TV. They paid a flat rate to Time Warner. I paid my
landlord like $12 a month for cable TV. Insanely good deal for me, and
Time Warner got a big fat check every month for the whole complex
regardless of how many tenants subscribed.
As cheap as it was they could have just jacked the rent up $10-$15 and
advertised free cable.
High density housing these days should be pre-wired for broadband. High
speed mesh on the property (100Mbps or more between units) and variable
level outbound bandwidth based on tiered bandwidth caps regulated at the
router. Here in the U.S. we're sort of behind the curve compared to
many other nations.
