Why are WCC doing this?

As part of the project to improve broadband speeds WCC need to understand what telecoms equipment is already out there. Unfortunately the BT data on the positions of these cabinets is not accurate, and as speeds can be affected by relatively short distances of copper cabling, they need to accurately pinpoint the locations of these green cabinets.
