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.... ?


I've seen a few along with building company boards when they are renovating a property behind the pole, it isn't legal.

As for the Openreach poster, the one shown in this thread has 1 small BT globe logo which is part of the Openreach logo. So beyond Openreach being a BT group business I can't see how it really counts as "plastering BT all over the cab"...

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".


Well their Coax system can deliver faster downstream speeds than FTTC can, so not sure how you can say that.

Also, gotta love how some people here are going bad over a post on a cabinet!

Any little reason to complain these days!

They are being neutral. The posters say "Fibre broadband is here", NOT "Infinity is here"

good point.

No, the legality bit, is the fact they are advertising, and probably haven't got permission from the council to do so.

I though they had to?

Question is whether it is classed as an advert or as information pertaining to the installation of the cabinet itself. As its not advertising any commercially available to the public brands or products I would argue the latter.
