      The way the building industry is at the moment, you'd be lucky to get an electrical connection and running water.

      When blocks of flats are put together, they tend to use the cheapest telephone cable to run from downstairs to the flat. They don't connect it to the BTO Cabinet though, this is for the first person who moves in to do at their expense.

      The fun will be when FTTP is upon us all. I expect that a lot of flat will end up stuck in the dark ages with FTTC and unable to get the owners to fork out to upgrade the block to support Fibre properly.

      It is bad enough now in some. All the houses have recycle bins, but large flats have one chute for everything.

      I live in a flat (ground floor) no chute though, we have a 'bin store' in the private car park with 9 recycling bins and 2 large general waste bins. its excellent dont need to worry about forgetting to put them out....come to think of it i dont even know when our bin day is and i've been here 3 years!!

      Sorry, I was thinking of blocks that are 5 or more stories high with regards to the chute.
