I don't know the proper name, but i believe this is sort of a patching/junction box. It is Chorus (not telecom) equipment however it is not a Whsiper cabinet with ISAMs in it, so lines going through it will still be linking up to a further away exchange/cabinet.

Looks like a Chorus passive cabinet, which I think is what you mean.

As a passive cabinet, it doesn't 'help' you with broadband speed unless it has been upgraded from what is in the photo

Haha!  I was thinking the same thing.

I actually thought these little cabinets were for fibre connections.  I often see them directly next to double bay whispers.





Sometimes what you don't get is a blessing in disguise!

Yea but they will probably rewire the cabinet back up with plenty of extra cable length, doubling the OP line attenuation and dropping sync speed to dialup :)




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

 

Cel-Fi supply and installer - boost your mobile phone coverage legally
Rural Broadband RBI installer for Ultimate Broadband and Full Flavour

I couldn't see anything at those second set of coordinates. If you go to http://bcc.telecomwholesale.co.nz/ and search for your address, then it should tell you what cabinet you are on (e.g. ABC/DE) and that code should be on the front on the physical cabinet in black on yellow lettering (although the first cabinet that you linked to doesnt appear to have that). You might need to go for a drive to actually see that detail on the cabinet

All that pages has is a link to http://www.chorus.co.nz/maps , which doesn't tell you what your connected to.
