I have a question and if not applicable here please point me in the right direction.

We are in the process of getting fibre installed in our complex - lekker - I plan to get a 20 mbps line.

I rent out the flat in front of me (10 meters away max) and would like to know if I got a decent wifi router could I share the internet connection with the tenants and would 20 mbps be sufficient for both of us to stream at the same time.

I would say yes.

It would depend if there is already fibre in the complex - if there is then easy - if not then you will need a fibre provider to come and role out fibre in the complex which can be major hassles.

Regarding the sharing - you can do that but might need to setup some dedicated wifi equipment - home wifi access points are generally not very strong if it has to go through 2 walls on your side and then 10m and then say 2 walls again at the flat it is not going to work.

You get wifi setups that can run for many many kilometers as long as they have line of sight - if your home router also has line of sight to the flat it should work as well.

All possible but I would set it up with some sort of Bandwidth limits,
With no limits nothing stops the tenants from hogging all the bandwidth and leaving you with a slow connection waiting for all sorts of thing sot download or stream

Thank you for the help guys.

Is this overkill? https://www.takealot.com/ubiquiti-nanobeam-m5-hp-16db-poe-dish/PLID33054444?gclid=Cj0KCQjwttbWBRDyARIsAN8zhbJQqIQPfuArJ-zkHe2B9uVnzZHdKULnT75tuK4RZiXgme0nbWL4a8MaAut2EALw_wcB

I will most likely ask for help setting up bandwidth limits as I was not even aware one could do that - smart idea that!

You will have to adjust the output power to the lowest setting, at 10m the units will scream each other to death. Rather look at the Loco M5's
