Excellent. I don't know why they were doing this 30 yrs ago. With all the housing estates being built across Thailand I am still amazed that they put all these tangled unsightly wires up on poles still. Maybe it is cost.

The cables around Phuket are a visual pollution which is hideously ugly. If the poles only had electric cables it would not look too bad but the proliferation of cables from the telephone & cable TV companies is what really makes it bad plus when new ones are strung up the ones no longer in use are left there & in many cases just dangling down.
