In our area they replaced all of the old B-boxes with new beige ones. IMHO the only sad thing is their new telco boxes aren't as funky as the old ones (eg, the floating RTs hehe), waste of money I suppose, but it'd be neat if they made sculpture instead of generic beige boxes.
The comcast boxes aren't pretty, but they're MUCH, and I do say.. MUCH smaller than a V-Rad, shit they're about 1/3 the size of your average B-box in height/width (maybe a bit thicker). Thing is, they're placed all over the damn place, there's what.. 12 comcast boxes for every vrad?
If you ask me the problem isn't that AT&T is now placing V-Rads in people's front yards, no the problem is that the city allowed that to happen.
