I can understand why they would want to advertise but would have thought they would need permission from the Highways Commission as the cabinets are not on private land.

Exactly my thoughts - at least the first thing that sprang to my mind was the legality of fly posters. Even if they own the boxes I doubt that the planning permission requests included "advertising hoarding" in the description.

Really, not so much of an issue is it ?
Look at the countless numbers of estate agents boards that are around, (and often even attached the telephone poles.)

wonder what the fallout would be if some employee were to mistake a few dozen Virgin cabinets for Openreach ones and wack the stickers on those...

Haha, give me some posters and we'll find out tongue

God I hate VM so much. Their fibre nodes are further away from end user premises' than good old ADSL connections yet they still get to use the term "Fibre Broadband".

Fair enough but Estate Agents boards are generally within the boundary of the property which by their nature must have permission from the owner. The fibre cabinets are on public property.

Ive seen thousands of estate agents billboards.. never seen 1 on a pole.

Does raise an interesting question about the legality of it though.

Also, i thought openreach were supposed to be ''neutral' and treat all ISPs the same. ? obviously plastering BT all over the cab doesn't meet that requirement.... ?
