I found this, and many other like it, above the ceilings of a smart residential complex. The cable is CT167 and the white object is a cheapo plastic ‘Y’ splitter. In order to connect the cable into the ‘Y’ splitter the installer has forced 11 mm CT167 into the unwilling bodies of various 6 or 7mm ‘f’ plugs. He has then used ‘f’ to Belling adaptors. The sockets on the splitter couldn’t take the strain of the stiff CT167 so they have broken. The blue and yellow tape hides the gore when a thick cable violates a small plug. Note that some of the crimp type ‘f’ plugs have broken in two under the strain. The shiny box is a four-outlet tap-off unit of Italian origin.
