Where is my Cabinet?


[link to this post]
 
I'm on Stourbridge OpenReach P44 cabinet (using Kitz site to find that info) but can't find where the actual cabinet is located.

There are 2 cabs on the brow of the hill on Parkfield Road but have been told that they both belong to VM.

Does anyone know of a site with a map of cabinet locations?

Was Eclipse Home Option 1, VM 2Mb & O2 Standard
Now Utility Warehouse (up to 16mbps) via Talk Talk

As easy one for me, as we've spent years building our cabinet database

Yes, https://www.telecom-tariffs.co.uk/codelook.htm?xid=4...

Run your cursor over the green dots on map & the cab nos show up. It's near the junction of A458 with St. Johns Rd.

MrS has included a photo which looks correct but doesn't correlate with XRaySpeX 's site which shows the cabinet at the other end of the road. Maybe it's indicative.

I'll take a wander later today.

The Codelook site does not show the actual cabinet location just a general Postcode area. I would say that the Google map image is adequate evidence of the true location.smile

I tried using that CodeLook link and it gave the middle of my postcode. I donít have a landline, but supplied the first 7 digits of all around me and my old one, plus the postcode.

The cabinet is about quarter of a mile away from the postcode centre, on a different road altogether.

The photo has to be right.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk. Domains, site and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Three 4G, tbb tests normally 35-45Mpbs down, 65Mbps off-peak, 9-24 up. BQM

A photo of the location has to win.

Codelook is doing approximate positions, hence why I don't use it in case anyone was thinking that.

I doubt there is one publically available as it's not on streetview

Iím confused with your response here. Mr S posted a Street View image, you can clearly see the number 44 on the image. Why do you need to take a wander? Heís answered your question.
