Fibre Cabinets


[link to this post]
 
Is there anyway of finding the physical locations of fibre cabinets. I have no idea where my telephone cab is. The Wholesale checker tells me I'm served by Cab 4 on my exchange.

Walk and look!

Follow your drop wire back to the pole, then to the next ... it will give you a general idea. Then start looking on verges, in hedges &c.

Drop wire goes to a pole 10 mtrs away then goes underground. Are cabinets numbered? I've looked around when walking around my area, without success.

Yes they are numbers (mostly) if it goes underground then follow the man hole covers - they usually will follow the road/pavement.

Your cabinets fibre twin will be no more than 80m away from your copper cabinet.

What's your postcode, we can play hunt the cabinet on Google street view. What speeds are they suggesting, this may give you a vague idea of the distance.

Found it thanks to a neighbour. He had apparently looked for it some time ago.

Trainspotting for internet geeks.

Not that I know where most of the cabinets in my town are of course smile

you can look them up on planning application systems too - the cab number is usually included in the BT Agent's notification to the local planners.
