What's red, useless, sits on the street and could be yours for £2,000? No, not Andy Carroll but if you want to fork out a wedge of cash for something similar, then BT are once again flogging off their red phone boxes.
The grand red K6 boxes are testament to the mobile revolution that has swept the world over the past decade. Who needs to fumble around for 10p pieces to make a call, when everyone carries a mobile?
According to BT's figures, the number of calls made from payphones has dropped 80 per cent in the past five years, and six out of ten phone boxes lose money.
Little wonder then that those in charge of BT's payphone business have looked at alternative ways to make money.
“Now you can buy a twentieth century design icon that’s famous around the world for your home or garden or you could even buy one as a gift for the person you know who has everything,” gushed Katherine Ainley, general manager for BT payphones, announcing the sell off.
It's not the first time BT has sold off its red phone boxes – it got rid of a load back in the 1980s, when it realised that horrible-looking plastic cubicles were far cheaper to maintain.
And other companies have been selling the phone boxes ever since – usually at eye-watering prices.
Meanwhile, BT has for the past four years been offering local communities a chance to “adopt” a red phone box – although the cost for doing so is a meagre £1, rather than the near £2,000 it would cost to buy one.
But as the internet age gathers pace, it seems likely that BT's kiosks won't be the only bit of red street furniture destined for the history books. Surely it can't be too much longer before the Royal Mail starts flogging off post boxes too?
