Yes and no.
The technology is the same, being fiber to a node and then VDSL(1/2) to the actual home/apartment. In this regard, there is no difference in the network between a home and an apartment - both get fiber to some remote point and then VDSL(1/2) over copper from there to the lounge room.
With FTTN, the most important thing is how close the node is. With a suburban house, you might be an average over 1km away, and FTTN will be far inferior (in speed) to FTTH. Added bonus is that the copper running from the node to your home will likely as not be old and less than ideal in terms of line noise.
In an the 'high-value' apartment buildings they are talking about, the node is going to be around 100-200m (copper length) away, and that copper is going to be newer and likely of higher quality. The result is that these 'high value' customers will indeed get good speeds that are noticeably faster.
FTTH is preferable for many reasons but on speed alone, FTTN is 'good enough for now' if that node is in the basement.
