How do utilities work? (Prague)

I am hoping to relocate to Prague before the end of the year with my company. Before I start negotiating terms, I would like to know how utilities work in Prague.

How are telephone charges calculated? In Germany I had a confusing "click" system so you never really knew how much a call cost until you got your bill.

How much would utilities (electric, gas, water) cost for an average 2 bedroom apartment? Are they paid monthly? Are utilities paid apartments common?

How good is the internet? I tend to do a lot of streaming video here (no cable or satellite tv for me), would the available internet services support that?

It has been about 15 years since the last time I lived in Europe and visited the Czech Republic so any information would be helpful.

What surprised you the most or that you wish you had known before moving?

Thank you!
