Comcast Green Box In The Yard
The internet service provider company, Comcast has installed Comcast Green Boxes in many houses and these boxes have wires attached and they provide internet service to the user for whom the box is installed. These wires are well-taped and buried in the ground, for the safety of the people I whose house the box is installed.
QUALITY OF COMCAST BOXES
The quality of these boxes is unquestionable, and no hazardous incident due to these boxes have yet been reported. Moreover, these boxes have largely satisfied internet users as it provides endless enjoyment while surfing the internet.
CONCERNS OF HOUSEHOLDERS
In some cases, the boxes have disturbed the householders. The question that if the box is for my neighbor, yet it is installed in my backyard, why? So, there is a simple answer to it, it was probably installed before your house was built. Or maybe the previous owner granted the company permission to install it in his yard.
SAFETY OF CHILDREN AND PETS
In other cases, the householders are concern about the safety of their children and pets. They have a problem with the wire exposed to their children, in case of any carelessness the price paid will be dangerous. If that is your problem, the Comcast technicians must be available in your town or area. Try contacting them and tell them to bury the wires back in so that it does not cause any harm.
DIGGING OF THE LAWN FOR TECHNICAL PURPOSE
Furthermore, some people are concerned about their lawns. In case of any technical issue, the technician might dig their lawn, which will spoil their yards look. If you are a beauty-conscious person, yes, this thing might bother you. In such a case, you are advised to plant Astroturf, this kind of turf will be replaced back easily, and the look of your yard will be back on road in no time.
PLACEMENT OF COMCAST BOXES
Some of the people are worried because of their placement. The boxes are placed probably before you moved to this house, but still, if the placement bothers you. Call the Comcast support system, they will send a technician who will bring some wires as changing the placement might need more wire, and the technician will move it to your desired shot. And clear up the mess for you in case that bothers you too.
REMOVING THE GREEN BOX
Lastly, some people want to get them removed. The people need to understand that Comcast is a utility provider and they have the right to plant the box in your yard. But you want to remove it, report it to the support system. If it is possible, they will do it for you, but it might have a cost because the re-installation will be a costly process. But on your request, they might remove it.
These are very trivial issues and knocking the doors of the judiciary for this will not be a very wise way forward and a responsible citizen will never do this. Rather than that if you have any issues the above-mentioned ways for your particular concern might help you. Thank you!
