[CBN] Charter Business in an apartment complex?

I currently have Charter Business in my home and I am considering moving to an apartment complex. Does Charter Business have the ability to provide business internet to individual apartments within a complex? I know with private residences they run a new line that is completely separate from the residential line. I don't know how cable companies handle hookups at apartment complexes. I have not asked the apartment complex management yet as I'm concerned that they won't know what I'm talking about. I know that Charter residential is available at this complex.

we do not run separate drops for residential and business in same home unless necessary we just note both accounts. if they have cable and hsi there already internet can be installed business or regular residential the differences are in caps, support, static ip and the rest.

first even on priveite residents they dont always run there on line for Business

second of all another thing to consider is that apartment complexes are more prone to internet issues etc because of upstream noise and stuff

as for the apartment owner not knowing what your talking about they probably know heck they might even have charter Business themselves "which if they do you may be able to work out some sort of deal in the rent and pay them and combine bills there is a slight discount when you add a second line of hsi to a business account"

@zed An apartment "complex" isn't likely to work any deals on the rent as you aren't likely to be sharing anything. I can understand trying to work a deal if you are renting an apartment that is part of someones home.

And most apartment complexes are prewired. Charter simply connects to a junction box to which they have access and never sets foot inside the actual apartment. The apartment complex is most often responsible for all building wiring.

Thanks for the feedback, everyone.

Dogg, I know how the junction box works at my house and I did some of the wiring myself. However, would a junction box at a typical apartment complex allow for a unit to have residential and business at the same time? I'm thinking one room in the unit would have business and then another room would have residential? I would hope that each coax outlet in the apartment would have its own line at the junction box, but maybe that's too much to hope for?

some apartment can be tough to get two modems in spec others need to be padded to reduce signal coming in. signal strength and quality is what it is where it is split is really irrelevant.

Depends on the apartment and how old it is. Older ones just have all the cables run to a central location in a room and then go outside. Keep in mind most cables in apartments (older at least) are not straight run, they are daisy chained.

As for getting business it makes no matter, charter does not care you can get it on any line. They like to milk customers for services they don't need any way they can.

Looks like no one here thought about to mention that most older apartments are wired with rg-59 not rg6 pp

Don't forget the install charge you will be getting.

Most likely, you will have basically a single cable (from the junction box) to the apartment. I've seen some people state that you can multiple modems on a single feed, and I've also read that each modem/account has to have it's own cable.

If it's a deal breaker, call Charter and ask.
