because they will cut you off, and if you do get a key and seen opening the box you can get really into trouble

Yes you can get into trouble opening a green box, but if you have a high viz jacket on who is to know and as for the key it is only a 6mm x 6mm square male socket

must agree with the sentiment about paying them at least something - I admittedly got connected and then canx within the 30 days

However, I've gone with them for broadband now (i dont need a phone).

Gutted over losing my tea time simpsons though...

Who knows !
I wouldn't advise anyone to go messing around in these cabinets. To save a tenner a month its simply not worth the potential risks involved !

In between Bro and Mairyhinge. Hold that thought..
How will you know you're in the right box anyway???
Our engineer went to 2 boxes before he found the right 1.
Turns out i'm cabled up to a box in the next street!!!!

Not worth the risk if you ask me
Give them an inch.........but take a mile!!! :eater:

I managed to look inside one of them when I called an engineer round to fix a problem with my broadband connection. Each wire has tags on them displaying the door number. So I'd imagine you'd have to find the feed with your door number on and just screw it on but its not advised. Just take out a sub of some sort.

Ya, at least leave them a chance to get some money, otherwise nobody is going to maintain the system..... : shocked2.... But NOT keep changing the code......

If the cable keeps being reconnected, they might be suspicious and come to knock the door.... It just maybe..... Who knows :confused: ????
