Last year I logged a call with VM asking if it would be possible to relocate a small street cabinet on Skiddaw in York. I received no response. I don't even know if it is a VM box, so really just wanted to establish ownership as a starting point. Can anyone help please?
A lot of the early franchises had cabs like this. Some were used just to house line extenders to bigger cabs several hundred metres away. Relocations on HFC networks are a big job, as wherever the cab is moved too some service tees will be facing the wrong way into the ducting, which in some cases means half the street has to be dug up to reverse them. It will also leave some customers having to have new drops pulled & even their gardens dug up.

Whoever owns the cabinet surely the easiest way to fix the problem would be to move all the contents into a sunken concrete box in the pavement. It might even be possible to turn the contents of the box through 90* without even disconnecting anything.
