New Haven Independent: U-Verse Boxes Rattle Neighbors
"With millions of dollars of equipment at stake, AT&T has vowed to wipe off any graffiti from new utility boxes like this one.
The pledge comes as the city works to combat a graffiti “epidemic” plaguing neighborhoods.
The city wants your help holding the company accountable by reporting any graffiti on the new AT&T equipment called V-rad, or U-verse boxes.
Neighbors across the city have objected to the new additions to their blocks. A woman on Howard Avenue in the Hill grumbled that the box blocked her window view and kept her up at night. An East Rock woman successfully lobbied to get the utility box moved further down Edwards Street so it wouldn’t sit right outside her studio."
