BT Green Box

No, I think you're all wrong.

It is actually part of cqg4uzg's 2Kw bird frying linear amp.

He has obviously removed the valves to ensure that I cannot see what they are!!

I believe they normally reside in the white socket box..

Can't believe you swapped your type-R for an antenna!

Ok, I knew that.  You can see the Philips Magnavox digital distribution node (the silver box). The NTL phone distribution is on the right.
The BT boxes that remain are very similar from the outside. Now, most new BT distribution boxes are underground in manholes. However, they suffer with being filled with water if the drainage is bad.

Anyhow, point I was making was, don't  blame PlusNet if your DSL goes down. There is a whole BT network, between you and PlusNet.

A "BT Green Box" or properly known as a primary connection point or "Cab" is always above ground to allow access. It is a flexibility point for connecting any Exchange pair of wires to any Distribution pair of wires in the local loop.

The street cabinet looks very similar to CATV street cabinets and BT usually get the fault report first, this used to be a high priority callout to go and close.

If your Broadband is down, check for dial tone - not fool proof but if no dial tone or "crackly" then probably  a BT fault

Woah  :shock:   Surely the point of encasing the wires is to protect wire from element and human from wire...I know it must take O, 5 seconds to open the doors, but it isn't that difficult

And they might at least brighten it up with some of those cold cathode lights and flashing LEDs...
