1) in my part of the world in the 90s, there was no use nor demand for
the LAN in residential areas, but once the internet content grew, the
internet connection got increasingly better, and more people began
buying computers.
2) in your part of the world, ethernet LAN (for some yet unexplained
reason) became extremely popular in residential multi-storey buildings.

Because

1. it was cheap to buy an ethernet card and a cable and connect to the
neighbors

2. five people if acting together could get cheaper Internet than acting
separately - just buy one channel (whether fiber, ADSL, radio or other
technology available then) and share it.

3. such networks grew to become local providers, then merged to become a
city-wide provider
