He called out to him in the dark, but the man did not reply. When he approached the still man, he discovered to his horror that the figure he saw was that of a dead man slumped against the tree, tangled in cables. The incident took place on Friday near Number 36 Road in Bang Lamung in a tree-filled area the man was tasked with visiting to fix the internet wires. He discovered […]

...police say that the most likely cause of death was either suicide or an accidental death when he attempted to cut the power cables, perhaps to steal them and perhaps thinking it was the internet lines, not high-voltage dangerous wires

Who'd have guessed 😂?

"a pair of white cutters"? Really?

Can you at least review the article before publishing it?

That's solved it then, those cables are black. Wrong tool for the job.

If Thailand cleaned up the wires problem they would probably have enough copper left over to pay for the remediation and have a few million baht left over.  Copper is 144,000 Baht a tonne at the moment.

Maybe -- after a few more die or they get fed up with replacing that which is pilfered.

MEA/PEA cables are predominantly aluminium, not copper, and the internet cable almost all fibre optics now.

Stripping out copper cabling from old houses, even one's under construction, is a trend in poorer regions.

If power and Internet companies were made to remove redundant cables the tangle of wires would be drastically reduced. 

If

Plus the unnecessary loading on the posts would just maybe allow them to replace at longer intervals if the redundant cable were to be removed. Well that is assuming they had proper foundations in the first place and were erected vertical.

Another case of wiring in Thailand. For example in Europe they have distribution boxes including lists with wiring plans, numbers and colours. The wires have diferrent colours and the numbers on it. If they have to fix something they kniw which wire it is, remove it and do the new wiring. In Thailand they not want to developp it, no wiring plans, distribution boxes, all the same colours. To fix they just make new wires leave the defect because nobody knows anymore which wires goes where til you have tons of wires hanging on a pole. Saftey? Leaving defect cables can cause cable fires and kill the next worker because of an electric shock! The the authority anounced they take safety serious without any fundamental knowledge about safety and how do correctly and safe wiring. If you wanna fix something by yourself it is always a guessing so better not touch anything what this so called technicians or engineers made.

Still very viable if aluminium, just over 100,000 baht per tonne and price going one way- up- due to shortages in the market.

In patong they're in the process of putting all the cables underground. They've done the beach road and actually makes it look better without the pilons and wires.. or now takes your eyes off of the wire eyesore to the eyesore shops !
