Shared Broadband Infrastructure for block of flats

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
Can anyone provide me with different ideas of how a block of flats could be installed with a Broadband link which can then be shared.  The block will be about 20 floors high with 4 flats on each floor.

Two ideas I already have are:

1) A network of wireless routers / repeaters across the floors (Possibly an expensive solution and risk of  equipment theft)

2) Powerline / homeplug technology (I've had problems with this in the past where electricity is on different loops)

I'd like to know if someone had other alternative ideas?
