Connection costs - usually included in apartment charges?

Hi all,

I am looking for a new place and have a question regarding the connection fee for internet/TV/etc.

In my first place here, the connection fee was not included in rent/usual charges so I had to pay an extra 30CHF per month for this as well as internet cost. Cablecom state that the costs are usually covered by the usual apartment charges though.

"The costs for this connection (usually CHF 29.95/month) are normally covered by the ancillary costs in rented apartments."

Is this usually the case? Can anyone let me know whether it is included in your usual charges?

No, it is not included in the rent.

Yes, it is included in the ancillary costs.
