The street I live on in Batley, West Yorkshire has had one of those green boxes (Empty) on it for no joke, about 15 years:
You can see here: http://goo.gl/maps/whvNci
Each house has a black triangle shaped point outside of it too which says CAB on it.
It seems whoever installed the cable box obviously intended for the street to have cable at some point but we've never had it, MYBAT information says cable is enabled at the exchange but FTTC isn't.
Can anyone figure out what's going on? When should we be able to get cable?
