Unknown Cables on Front of new Property Purchase

Postby AdamDelaurey » Tue Aug 13, 2019 4:33 pm

I am in the process of buying a house that has a lot of cables on the front, I know that some will be for the aerial / satellite dish but any ideas on what the others could be for?

P.S I know the picture isn't a lot to go on, I am just hoping they can be removed/rerouted

Simply Build It

Since a cable can be used to supply many things it is not possible to look at a cable and specify what it is doing unless it is possible to see what it is connected to, a perfect example is your satelite dish since it is easy to see what the cable is connected to.
Suggestions for what the other cables could be used for could be listed, but where would the list end, and how would you decide which is the one suitable for which cable.
The only real way to identify what a cable is for is to physically follow it and see what it is connected to.
