More Cut-backs for Welsh Consumers

Plaid launches phone box campaign
Jun 9 2008 by David James, South Wales Echo

PLAID Cymru has launched a website opposing the closure of phone boxes.

BT is planning to rip out 281 pay-phones in Wales where there is another one located within 400 metres.

The company is also consulting on the removal of a further 805 payphones as part of a proposed cull of 10,000 boxes across the UK. Plaid AM Chris Franks said: “I understand phone boxes are not used as often as they once were and many people have mobiles.”
