Comcast pulls utility boxes from Georgetown sidewalks

Following complaints from residents in Washington, D.C.'s historic Georgetown neighborhood, Comcast (Nasdaq: CMCSA) has removed several refrigerator-sized utility boxes from sidewalks, according to a report Sunday by community news site Georgetown Patch.

Comcast spokeswoman Aimee Metrick said last week that executives from the D.C. system were meeting with officials at the D.C. Department of Transportation and a Georgetown neighborhood association to "find mutually beneficial solutions" to resolve complaints about the boxes. Metrick didn't respond to a request for comment on Monday about whether the boxes had been removed.
