Re: why not lots of shared connections
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.
