My brother (in 🇳🇱) sent me this picture of a plug on the wall in his new apartment. What is it called? What does it do?
@levisan it looks like cox for cable or an antenna.
@levisan it's for cable television and radio. With fiberoptics it's barely used. Those connections are property of the cable provider! So officially your brother is not allowed to (re)move it without permission
@Haddem Interesting! What's it called in Dutch?
@levisan it's called an "antennedoos" (antenna box) it's a COAX connection
@Haddem cool, thanks!
@levisan I actually have no idea, if your message is sarcastic or serious...
My guess is that at least half the dutchers know the answer to your brothers question.
@levisan If you turn it upside down, it looks like a horrified robot.
