O.P. Name this socket
so I moved into a new apartment
and I found a wall plate with these two connectors protruding from it,
I know what the top two are, but what on earth are the bottom two sticky outie things for?

edit : I'm under the impression they're f connectors but still what are they for?

sky/satellite dish also use that type of connection

2nd one is possibly for multi room. i.e. its an out connection that goes to another faceplate in the apartment

Around here it's fairly usual to see two cable connections next to eachother. Usually one male and one female. One intended for the, the other for radio. At least that's the old and traditional way of looking at it. The truth is they both carry the same signal and you can connect whatever you want to both... But the upper left one looks more like what I'm used to for cable tv/radio/internet.

Looks like http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEC_169-2 to me. Also see my post above. Basically the same thing, but different connector.

Yup, we just refer to that generally as a coax connector [or at least, around here people do]

Same, but technically those F Connectors are coax too. Gotta have something to tell them apart in this case :).
