why not lots of shared connections it actually surprises me a bit that it has not become the norm for building to have shared connections for tenents

and on bussnuss side using charter as an example it forbids resale of the service unless you get one of the special fiber hookups which are crazy expensive
reply to tom thomas
this is how they do it in Japan
they have 1Gps pipe in the building and the tenets share it over ethernet
i have seen some condos that offer service like this too but they have there own TV service as well
That's how things are at my building in Chicago. 1Gbps line in the basement, each unit wired with ethernet. TV service is brought in via a DirecTV satelite array on the roof with enough capacity to handle multiple STB's per dwelling. Landline phone service is offered through AT&T as well, but most of us (the smart ones anyway) just use VoIP for that. It's a great setup from multiple angles - we're not at the mercy of any one provider, we pay super cheap rates, and the service is better than anything I've found from FIOS or Xfinity. Needless to say, I'm not moving any time soon.
Yeah, but your building is paying more than $100 or whatever Google has in mind
and when you have a few hundred tenants the price per tenant becomes very low.
