How to find Green Cabinet?


[link to this post]
 
Hi guys any idea on how I can locate my cabinet, I've found out I'm connected to CAB 50, I've had a walk around and managed to find 48 and 51 but cant seem to find any others. Is there any data available on where exactly the cabs are? The BT checker is showing I can get 40mb down 10mb up, so it must be quite nearby?

There's what looks like a green cab at the corner of Letchworth Road and Wynfield Road? (Or is that a Virgin one?)

Another one at the corner of Westfield and Letchworth... plus a variety of VM slave cabs dotted around.

Old tatty thing at the end of Meadhurst?

Looks like a cable cab.
This one on the right is BT, also this one.

thanks for all the quick replies guys, I can confirm most of the one's mentioned are Virgin Cable cabs, however the small one is a BT cab and is the closest I've managed to find near my house. However it is not numbered like the rest of the other BT Cab's I've seen in my area also it looks way too small unless its going to be upgraded soon?

CAB 48 I believe which may help find cab 50?

The may have to re-shell a PCP to enlarge it before they install the new DSLAM cabinet and connect them together.
Whats the number on it?
