New Phone Booth

After mobile phone getting popular, almost everyone from 8 years old to 80 years old is carrying one, public phone is left far behind. It was once nearly no more public phone service available. As I encounter, the majority who do not own mobile phone are the foreign workers. Since few years back, their population is growing in this country and demand on public phone raise accordingly. New public phones started to fill up the abandoned phone posts that usaully appeared as a stand with small cover. A phone "booth" like this in front of Ipoh Parade Shopping Center is normally not seen. It is indeed not a real booth but just covered by a flat roof and two advertisement boards. Anyway, it seems to have better privacy but I am worrying how well it will be maintained at the relatively low civic awareness of local society.
