I am not sure if this has been asked/answered, but just out of curiosity, I wanted to know how far the nearest cabinet is from my home. I checked on the Chorus website, but it only tells me when the expected UFB connection is to my place. Just wondering if anyone knows how I can find this out? 

 

Not just for my house, my friends have been asking me that question too but I dont know where to find this info.

Or your ISP will be able to tell you.

Thanks for that.  I am in Tawa and this shows no cabinets at all (but does show cell phone towers).  Does this mean that the copper network (no UFB is my area yet) goes direct to the local exchange (also not shown on this map)?

https://chorus2011.chorus-new.hosting.outwide.net/maps indicates that the bulk of Tawa is exchange-served.

Make sure you turn the cabinets layer on. It seems to be off by default.
