Key is which is your cabinet

https://www.btwholesale.com/includes/adsl/main.html will list it if you search by telephone number (and its not a LLU line), then find out where cabinet is and can then figure out which works apply to yours

The cab in linkwood drive is around 600m away so within range of reasonable speeds that looks a likely location, but you need find which cab it is to be sure.

http://www.thinkbroadband.com/guide/fibre-broadband.... gives you a rough distance versus speed guide.

Usually cab numbers are written on the cabs, but these were not visible on Google Streetmaps as looks like cabs had suffered graffiti and posters over the years.

The FTTC cabs don't get a number, the old phone cabinet is all that has the number on it.

Round my way Openreach have been putting the associated PCP numbers on the FTTC cabinets probably because there's a lot of FTTC cabs that aren't near their PCP.

There are a few FTTC cabs with some sort of ID code stencilled on them as well.
