Internet and cable extra

For rentals generally electricity is extra, how much would cable and internet cost per month?

I really depends on where you are renting and for how long.

Many places will charge for electric for long term rentals (not all do this) and most will include cable and internet in your rental.

Where are you considering to rent?

Not really answering the question, but we charge for electricity for all rentals, short & long. This was after we had a family stay for a fortnight who thought the best way to tackle global warming was to have the air-conditioning on 24 hours a day, with the windows open! After commission was taken out and the bill paid, we literally had US$20!

I would expect that most 'tourist' establishments would have cable & internet included in the rental (if they are there) because you can't really switch them on and off depending upon whether the renter wanted them or not. In a residential area it would be different I'd guess.
