Hmmm, if the exchange boundaries on the NGA Access map on the eircom wholesale site are correct then it would appear that these two fall under the Clonee exchange rather than Blanchardstown as they are currently mapped here.
Clonee exchange is marked as Phase 1 so the build-out should be complete - which means I've got some more cab hunting to do...
Can I trust those exchange boundaries to narrow the search?
Let me check. Download this to google earth if you have google earth.
White Lines show that Ongar is split between BDT East, CEE Centre and Dunboyne DEZ to the west.
These maps are often wrong or sloppy ....to say the least. I'd say the west part of Ongar might be covered by Clonee not Dunboyne.
The yellow coloured asset tags on cabinets will contain those letters to confirm their parent exchange. Dunboyne is not being done yet.
Not totally, the boundary data can be very slapdash in some areas.
I'll run a check later and will remark anything marked wrong from BLA to Clonee. Yes there are cabs out in Clonee incl in the industrial estates N and S of the Damastown Road north of the N3. Ladyswell Road further east is in Blanchardstown.
A few more spotted on a curious drive home.
53.411571,-6.425829 Damastown (labelled as CEE1 _0502)
53.402584,-6.438049 Beechfield Close (labelled as CABINET15)
53.397435,-6.426189 Manorfields Ave (labelled as CEE1 010A - if memory serves correctly)
53.39589,-6.429159 Manorfields Drive
53.389185,-6.428589 Allendale Square
53.384103,-6.424179 Portersgate View
Labelling wasn't present on all and in a couple of cases I wasn't able to stop to examine.
I'll try to go back on them at some point to get better info where possible.
StreetView for the old cab on Manorfields Drive is amusing - cab is open and an eircom van parked beside it. :-)
Finglas, WOW, many many thanks to the mapper who updated all those cabinets in one go today.
Do you want the cabinet tags added to the description?
Cabintes near me scheduled for Dec 2014? Colpe Exchange. Cabinets have been there since August 12 and cabled and powered from ESB.
Will I add a cabinet if its not yet in place BUT .........
They have dug up part of the road and ran in the orange ducting cable ,
They have the bolts in the ground for the cabinet to be put in place but its not yet there ?
Edit : I may of changed the title of the map , sorry , I have added it on for now ,
I took out your instructions on the opening info SB by mistake .
Only if you are on foot or cycling and it is convenient, if you are driving by please dont go to any bother or danger over a tag. Tag checking suits some mappers and not others and the tags might not appear for months after a cab anyway as in Galway.
I'd like confirmation of the tags in Stamullen and suspect Colpe ones east of the Dublin road in the new estate though...to see if the parent exchanges are being 'abolished'
If the power and fibre is sticking out of the concreted plinth I will allow it as a cabinet on the grounds that one will surely be there the next time you look. They only pour the concrete when the cabinet arrives in a container in Rotterdam or Harwich, that is how well sequenced the rollout is.
Once the cabinet arrives in Ireland it does not hang around in an eircom store, it goes from Dublin Port to the plinth more or less.
If it is a PLANNING Notice for a cabinet Chalkmarks where a PLINTH is to be dug in I'd rather it was marked ONLY as a PLANNING cabinet as it may never be built....eg as in D4 and D6 where the cabinets seem to be stuck in planning.
But i don't want people travelling around unnecessarily for the mapping project and hopefully that explanation will help. I am not worried about duplicate markers either, they can easily be sorted later.
An easy fix, happened a few times before. ( its still in the big read only map so I just copy n paste)
Would seem that its all set to go ,
and they have ran power to it too ,
Quick question , I live in the estate across the road , would our fibre be getting ran from this also or would it run from the cabinet in our estate which is just across the road (100mtrs )
New Cab Location
Old Cab in my estate across the road
Tried to upload one for Kilkenny there. Followed the instructions and saved it but when I went back into the map it didn't appear. Tried it twice so not sure what I'm doing wrong. Here are the details:
52.6,-7.25 Kilkenny - KNY - Rosehill Estate
Off footway on southern side of entrance to Rose Hill Estate. Free standing cabinet in shrub verge marked KNY_042A
I'll hopefully get about on the bike over the next few evenings and get some more
Kilkenny. WHEEEEE!!!!! is there at the end ( twice) , the new adds will appear on the last page after you save, they may appear elsewhere while you are editing.
As for the estate in Newbridge, it depends. If your estate was 1km long with 500 houses they might put a cab inside, if small then maybe not.
Each cab has 200 ports and they would want to fill the 200 ports ......ie 200 houses and maybe they eg pass 300 houses to get 200 signups.
I thought I had the same problem ,
If you look at the list of all the cabs on the left hand side , down the bottom you will see page 1,2,3,4........... , more than like you were the last person to add one in and your addition is on page 4 .
The map will only show what page your are on for some reason rather than every addition.
SB got in before me .,
On the amount of houses , I think Belmount has 65 houses and mine (Kilbelin Abbey ) about 70, but Walshestown which is direct behind and to the left of Belmount could have over 300,
Il get out around my neck of the woods in Newbridge and start mapping up as I see activity , the baby is a great excuse for having an aul nose about , her indoors was wondering what came over me today when I said I would take the little one for a Walk
I'd guess there is one inside Walshestown but that your estate shares with the one across the road. Maybe they could get power easier on the far side than on your side is all. 100m is a LOT in VDSL terms. I don't know the planning ratios and precise criteria though but in parts of Kildare and Newbridge (and even Naas) eircom will do really well as UPC are only offering rubbish MMDS TV and have not upgraded to 2 way cable.
Id say they will put a cabinet in , they had a ADSL one in both areas so one would presume they will do the same for VDSL , one can only live in hope .
Its going to be a very good market , and be a handy handy handy number for the door to door salesman from Eircom when they have the fibre up and running because everyone will want a piece of the action.
Will save me a fortune driving up and down to D4 most days when in reality with decent broadband a lot of what I do can be done from home.
Added one for Longford (Church St / Battery Road), just installed 3 weeks ago.
I was assuming that the orange cable being laid along the N4 from Edgeworthstown to Longford Town was fibre and came across this thread while trying to confirm it. I'll keep an eye out for some more.
