Want to keep a phone box?
With payphones being used less, communities are looking at new ways of using them. Modern glass boxes can be adopted if communities want to house a defibrillator. Visit BT's adopt a kiosk web page for more information.

 

Use of payphones
Overall use of payphones has declined by over 90 per cent in the last decade and the need to provide payphones for use in emergency situations is diminishing all the time, with at least 98 per cent of the UK having mobile coverage.

 

Ofcom’s research into consumer views on the importance of communications services and their affordability found that most people no longer view payphones as essential for consumers in most circumstances.
