Re: Doesn't look like a cable box

said by kpfx:

Are we sure the box pictured really is a Comcast box? It looks more like a signal light cabinet or older telephone cabinet than a typical node enclosure or power supply / battery enclosure.

Yes. They're used in DC and I suspect many other cities.

Here is the inside of one at 14th and U NW.

Yep. I've seen that kind of enclosure before (sometimes as a splicing enclosure, other times for an amp or node). Although they're nowhere near the refrigerator sized VRADS of U-Verse deployments.

The picture in the article makes that particular box look nearly 5ft tall. Although I could be wrong... with that tiny little "fence" to the right and the low angle of the shot.

Those tiny fences go around tree boxes. See »petworth.wpengine.netdna-cdn.com···7959.jpg

Your picture is not the same box as in the picture. yours is just a big ped where the one in the picture is a power supply box.
