    Looks like a normal building in most cases.

    Mmmm , small green boxes are usually power connections. Or green cabinets can be cable termination boxes, where the multi-paired cable comes out of the ground to be distributed elsewhere.
    They haven't got them that small that the fit in a cabinet beside the road yet. They are still inside Telecom buildings.

    MUX boxes, PCM boxes can be "small green cabinets" They are not Exchanges (think airconditioning, backup power supplies for exchanges, hard to fit in a green box)

    If you are really unlucky they have installed a 0+2 pair gaining system. That will limit your connect speed to around 28 kb/s.

    I think they would use a "green box" for this equipment...

    Those green boxes have survellance equipment to snoop on your internet activities. Have you noticed there is one in every street?

    Are you positive the box wasn't blue? Might of been a TARDIS.
