Coax Cable would be for a TV not Internet.


What setup does the Wifi user have that you are sharing , are they next door or close by ?


Depending on what is available in the complex is your first avenue.


If you have a telephone installed in your apartment then Adsl2  would be available via a ISP , you would have to apply for the service and if availability of any ports. 


If you dont have a telephone , ask others within Complex as NBN or Cable may be available.

Actually...a coax cable may also provide Internet/phone service...depends on what the cable provider offers.  I have TWC and my coax cables carry TV, Internet, and phone.


Of course...a coax cable input is of no value unless you subscribe to the services offered by the cable provider.
