Can anyone point me towards a Telecom Roadside Cabinet map so I can check the distance from it to a house I am looking to rent please.

Thanks Ned but that doesn't tell me where in that purple section the cabinet is located, anyone know how to find out exactly where the cabinet is?

Go to exchange details / show cabinets

I don't think you can. Telecom will obviously have their own location maps, but I think you will have to drive around and visually locate the cabinet(s) nearest to the address.

I know there is a cabinet at the top of our road about 1km away, and one at the bottom of the road about 500m distant, I'm not sure which one we are connected to, but the line attenuation figure suggests the one furthest away.

Well for me, that doesn't actually show the cabinet location, just an area covered by the cabinet. Perhaps i'm missing something ?

the cabinet is usually in the middle of the pink outline. Well my one is.

You might have to ring Telecom to find out.

I got it. Do that map thing on telecoms website and see where the area the cabinet services is and then go on google maps and use street view.
