New photos of CenturyLink broadband boxes

Here are some photos of above-ground utility boxes like the ones CenturyLink hopes to put on parking strips around Seattle.

City Hall is considering dropping a rule that encourage companies to put such equipment underground, in hopes that more broadband services will follow. But it doesn’t have a firm commitment from CenturyLink on when, where and what sort of upgrades it will provide in return. Last week the mayor’s office told me it was planning to ask the City Council by the end of June to approve the change; now it says it’s still studying the change. Perhaps it will now have time to explore options for mounting the equipment up on power poles and avoiding a big fight with neighborhoods.

I posted a few images in my blog yesterday showing an AT&T cabinet in San Francisco and other cabinets in Seattle.

CenturyLink then sent an image of a cabinet wrapped with a sticker that looks like greenery:

Then Andre Vrignaud, a Seattle resident lobbying for better broadband in the city, shared photos of CenturyLink DSL-related cabinets recently installed in Montlake:
