I really am amazed that they don't suffer from more vandalism than they do.

BT Green Box

This is a local BT Green Box close to me. Fortunately, my line doesn't go through it. It has been like this for almost 2 months despite it being reported. There has been some activity, one kind person cleaned out the discarded Indian Curry and replaced it with a french bread stick.

The doors are missing and it is open to the elements, and the vandals.

Moral of this story is, if your DSL goes slow, check out your street corner BT Box.

That was why my connection had problems, but in my case a lorry had smashed into it.

A pair of wire cutters might get them out quicker to fix it Wink Or you could try washing your car with a hose right next to it. :twisted:

A car crashed into our green box last year when it was icey, clean took it off the walkway.. A day later BT had replaced it with a manhole cover - pretty fast work.. And not likely to get knocked over any time soon Smiley.

Are you sure this is a BT box?

Doesn't seem to have enough spaghetti in it to me?

I admit, this one is actually quite tidy. Even the french bread stick is not mouldy.

Guess he 'fried' the car.

No looks like a cable cab not BT's. Just driven past a coulple (with doors on) and look similar.

The box is not one of BT's its a NTL one and they are always leaving the doors open on their street cabinets.
