More protests about AT&T's U-Verse deployments: Those ugly boxes - FierceTelecom: "Citizens in North Carolina and Indiana are petitioning their local governments to stop AT&T's from installing large Video Ready Access boxes for its U-Verse service in their neighborhoods. The citizens claim the boxes are noisy and unsightly, and that the installation process creates a mess. David and Wendy Hostetler, of Belmont, N.C., hired lawyer Jim Windham to argue that the box installation would detract from the historic quality of the neighborhood. AT&T stopped installation on that box, according to the Hostetlers. The Belmont Public Works Committee will explore the U-Verse installation at a meeting this week.
In a separate incident, the Evanston City Council (Ind.) voted to issue a statement to AT&T to ask the telco to cease installations of the boxes in the city until it could form an oversight committee. Evanston residents had complained about the noise and prominent size of the boxes."
