    I don't *know*, but I'm going to hazard a guess that it's an enclosure
    for where two multicore cables have been spliced [or crimped] together.

    Both answers are either wrong or not complete. Hint: A photo
    is not needed.

    And I thought the were wifi experts here. ;-)

    Er, OK, if we're going for the absurdist angle, then I would say the
    answer is that the inside looks very dark.

    Possibly a fibre optic joint box.

    Yep. Fiber splice can commonly used by AT&T. There should also be a
    spare fiber storage loop nearby (so that splicing can be done on the
    ground instead of in the air). See photos at:

    Given the picture, it looks like a enclosure. It could hold fiberoptic
    splices, or even wire splices. Noting that I don't see a power supply, it
    appears to hold a passive (not powered) device of some sort like those
    mentioned. It you think it is a wireless tranciever of some sort, then show
    us the power source. Wireless transcievers require power to operate.
