That is not an easily answered question! A 1bdrm apartment in one building may run 200 for winter elec/gas costs...while a place more efficient may run 60 bucks.

Cable, internet...you can find those pricing packages online.

It does depend on many factors. Minimize the winter heat bill by turning it down when you lave for work, better yet put in a dual setback thermostat.
With a lot of work I manage to keep our combined gas/electric bill at or below $300 on a 3,000 sf home in winter. I know people in small apartments paying
between $75-200. If it's sandwiched between floors, say on the 5th floor of an 8 story, it's likely to be lower than on the top, and a corner unit will cost more to heat. Cable/internet depends on what you get. With premium TV and several boxes plus a DVR, phone and internet from Comcast you can figure $150/month. Basic cable only will be much less. Some apartments have deals with internet providers and you can only use theirs.
