    Hi I have come home and at the bottom of my drive way have noticed this thing bolted about 7ft up the telegraph pole with a laser/laser radiation warning sticker on it.

    Anyone know what this is and what it does or what all the numbers mean?

    Let's see if this link works for the picture :)

    But just in case it doesn't, it's a Prysmian optical fibre jointing system. I suspect the numbers are circuit/service identifiers and the laser radiation symbol is on there so as to make sure people don't open it without suitable eye protection.

    Not unless you were thinking of cutting the fibre cable and looking down the end.

    Looks like BT fibre is coming your way soon

    Apparently they're expecting an influx of Scousers into Essex, so BT are removing all the copper and replacing with fibre.

    Don't waste your time here, the Pikeys from Lincolnshire have had it all.

    That fibre splice box should be a lot further up the pole than that.

    BT were pulling the copper cable out round our way a few years ago, apparently BT was getting £3000 for a skip full.

    For sure it's a fibre optic repeater / booster,
    The radiation warning is for the laser diode.
    But unless your looking down the fibre when it's on,
    Then their is no problems.
    But you have to account for all types of idiots !
