    I'm amazed that Virgin's network actually works at all.

    Because a door is off?

    People vandalise and damage equipment owned by virgin/BT all the time.

    With the millions of boxes it’s impossible to stay on top of every single problem all the time.

    I appreiciate it's a game chasing vandalism, but these boxes are within at least a quarter mile radius. It's the harm that rainwater can do that would concern me.

    Luckily not a Virgin subscriber.

    Plus - these have been in this condition for years.

    Yes, I will admit that the last time I saw a BT box left open to the elements - I reported it.

    Only because it was the box that I am immediataly connected to & didn't want any down time if some drinker put his/her boot into it!

    Obviously Virgin or it's customers don't care.

    is not the same as "self-interested"
