BT have published a list of boxes in The National Park which they would like to remove due to minimal use.
This is not surprising as even the minimal upkeep they get must be costly.
Obvious many of these including Westerdale are in areas with limited if any mobile cover, but nonetheless they clearly are hardly ever used as people make calls from where there is a signal.
It's not difficult to imagine problems here in snowy conditions - when you have to gain considerable altitude to be able to make a call!
