How do I find out where my Cabinet is?


[link to this post]
 
I thought I knew where it was as I have two green cabs here

http://goo.gl/maps/p6DcV

But then I saw a Virgin Media van outside it and someone poking about inside. I am not to sure where else it might be?

Anyway to find out?

Thank you.

These pics may help. BT ones have 1 to 3-digit numbers stencilled or scrawled on them. VM ones have long numbers.

I've tried B21 8JA in the December 2011 spreadsheets but that wasn't listed at that time. The exact postcode you are in may give more info, but may not.

Have you looked what this checker says for your phone number?

Try the address option at my earlier link then smile. Not the pure postcode one.

Cabinet 103, and should have been live literally years ago.

Lol. Can't you follow the cables from your house?
What speeds do you get - this may indicate how far away it is?

That doesn't help much either. Have you unlocked the modem? If so, what are the attainable rates.

Not unlocked. Heard you need to solder a 9 pin d-sub connection to it.

ECI? Or use a clothes-peg. Or buy an unlocked one off Ebay.
Anyway, that looks like a fibre cab.

Yep those are probably they, you can see the new seams in the road where they did the construction to link the fibre cabinet to the old one.

As BatBoy says, that's a fibre cab. Huawei 288 if I'm not mistaken. Looks narrower than normal, but all the features are right and don't fit any other I know of.

The one the other side of the road is the PCP. It's the PCP that has the number, not the fibre one.

Round my way OR have started putting the number of the associated PCP on the fibre cabinets. Mind you it could be because there are quite a few fibre cabinets that are in different roads to the PCP.
