BT's red telephone boxes are making millions in profits despite a drastic drop in calls



BT’s ageing phone boxes still make the company millions of pounds in profits despite a 90 per cent drop in calls, a rival has claimed.
Vodafone said the kiosks raked in £14.5m a year through advertising, banks putting cash machines inside them and usage by customers. 
BT rejected the claims insisting the payphones were not profitable.
The telecoms giant is in the process of scrapping 20,000 of the boxes, which still number more than 40,000 in total. 
BT has sold some of the least profitable boxes – often those in villages – for just £1 to communities who want to keep them.
