Message from BT:
Why do we want to remove 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. This is important because as long as there is mobile network coverage, it’s possible to call the emergency services, even when there is no coverage from your own mobile network provider. Also, Ofcom’s affordability report found that most people no longer view payphones as essential for consumers in most circumstances.
