I see the kml files avaliable that people have posted here for the coverage of each exchange but i am wondering if anyone knows of any infomation or kml files avaliable of distribution (passive / active) cabinets.

Im looking for a map of all the PCM and passive cabinets in rural areas to see where broadband is underserved.

You would need to go ask Chorus, my KML's are based off what I got out of the RSM Database and were not supplied by Telecom at all.  They were extracted out the Governments Radio Spectrum Management Database.

On the Chorus site they have some good lists of all the cabinets being upgraded.  I don't think having a lat-long of a cabinet would really help all that much since where a wire goes through the ground and what areas it services is somewhat different from where a Cell Site transmits from.

Ok i might be thinking of one earlier than your cellphone tower kml. I have one that shows maps of each exchange, but not the cabinets included within.

The list of cabinets being upgraded are mostly only urban ones.
I am looking to become an unbundled provider and want to try unbundling a rural cabinet and serve 8 customers to see how it goes with the UCLL subloop service from chorus.
