Although there is some new data in /maps, the level of detail and layout is just not the same. Why not upgrade /sat to have the new info??
Thoughts? Protests? etc...

Chorusvan spoke to the team that manages our tools and they asked us to post this response; Hi all, Liam here from Chorus.
We have been looking at streamlining our mapping tools to support more efficient updates of the data. We have historically had FOUR separate mapping tools, but we were getting demand for one truly integrated map with clear methodology, that becomes one accurate source of information that is updated regularly.
It sounds easy: it isn’t! But we are working on it. Our goal is to get better alignment of coverage information across our reporting tools to help avoid confusion (something has become quite important as our network goes through some significant changes). We also have a number of enhancements plans to offer more detail and support planning.
We recognise the SAT has more detail than the UFB map as it stands, so we recognise your concerns about its closure. We are in the process of transferring a lot of this information to the UFB map. VDSL was intended to be shifted across by the end of the month meaning the UFB would have the same coverage information as SAT. However, we have also found that the cabinet and exchange boundaries also have high use so we are now in the process of including that into the UFB map as well.
We will leave SAT running as we transfer this information which should be over the next two weeks. Thanks for all the great feedback and support.
