Or run a new cable for every new connection instead of figuring out which is your (company) cable and connecting to that.  Surely if every new company did that it would come down to one cable per cable  TV company.

 

Also, I do not have cable but from comments on this forum, it appears that some companies are apparently closing their service down which means there shoud be some redundant cables there already anyway

One of the things that promted my comment on redundant wires comes from seeing one of the local roads being widened and the concrete poles being moved. Prior to moving there must have been more than 30 or 40 wires. Now the poles have maybe 9 or 10 wires and the rest have gone?????

Further down a bit they may have done just that. Or maybe the litter has grown over the top of them.

It is hard to say.

but I think you maybe onto something.

What does it look like after the tangles etc., have been fixed? 

 

-Is the wiring still visible above ground but less tangled?

 

-Has it gone underground?

Who says tourists are coming, or ever came, for nature?

Credit where credit is due. No-one seems to have been injured or worse during the course of this very dangerous type of work. I hope it stays that way.

No reported injuries u mean

Wouldn't it be cheaper to run the wires under the garbage??? just asking. 

great idea!!! the garbage piles are permanent anyway and it would save alot of taxpayer money by not going underground!

They are supposed to remove the old cables when replacing them. BUt never do. When I changed cable tv companies  when they came inside to install the box, I asked them if they were going to remove the old cable. They said they wouldn't because it wasn't their wire. 

So there is the continuing never ending problem.

They tidy them up often but new ones go up everyday.

 

Some sois are ok though. It looks like they have  Soi 9 theprasit all sorted.image.jpeg under control.

looks good to me as long as one doesn't scroll down to see the bigger picture...by the way, what part of Syria is this?

 progress of the beautification efforts

:cheesy: times a million.

 

I say that as someone that loves Pattaya, and wish they'd stop messing it up all the time, trying to make it something it's never going to be. Can't make a silk purse etc.

they are not messing it up..it's attitude and in the culture of many(not all)to do messy work, cheap  workmanship, corruption, total disrespect to regulations, mom&pop kiosks blocking  store fronts, blocking mall fronts, block almost all sidewalks with "stuff", wires hanging, path holes unfixed, litter everywhere, sewer everywhere...The city didn't stink in 90s..it does now24/7
