AT&T Backs Off On Boxes, For Now

New, 7 comments

AT&T, facing possible defeat at the Board of Supervisors, announced today that it will consider paring back its plan to place up to 726 utility boxes on San Francisco sidewalks. Probably the only thing they could do. If they'd done the EIR back in 2008, the communications giant would probably be be installing boxes right now. The 726 boxes would take up about 1.8 acres of San Francisco sidewalk and hum. On the other hand, we have people hungry for an alternative to Comcast. Can we please work this out? AT&T asked for an extension of five weeks to continue its charm offensive. [City Insider/Chronicle]
