I purchased two lots and built a house in the middle. The GTE green box is in the middle of the front yard. Any way this could be moved before the house is completed?

There's usually a phone number on the box. Call them. No one on City Data has any say in the matter.

A GTE *electrical* box? You're sure you didn't purchase the town's CO? ;o)

If it's a remote/concentrator/SLC, no, you probably can't have it moved without cutting off fone service to all the people on it. Even the phone company would probably balk at the idea.

If you are willing to pay the cost of moving it, they might do it. If it is a fiber optic connection, the cost could be astronomical though. This is what happens when you merge two lots in a subdivision. The boxes are located at the corners of lots but if you join two lots, it ends up in the middle.
