Warwickshire County Council Launches Cabinets Competition

Warwickshire County Council are running a competition to find the locations of the green telecoms cabinets that sit by the side of the road, with £150 in Amazon vouchers as prizes. To enter, all you have to do is to submit information about where the cabinets are and all verified entries will automatically be entered into a prize draw.

Cllr Alan Cockburn, Warwickshire County Council’s Portfolio Holder for Sustainable Communities  said: “As part of our project to roll out superfast broadband across Warwickshire we need to understand what telecoms equipment is already out there, and we are particularly interested in the green cabinets that sit by the side of the road. 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, we need to accurately pinpoint the locations of these green cabinets. Therefore we are running this competition to encourage people to help us. With so many people having mobile phones with cameras these days, and especially as the school holidays are about the start, we hope to generate a very good response. To make it even easier you can even download an app for Apple or Android phones via our website so that you can upload the information whilst you are out and about.”

To enter, visit https://4sfb.crowdmap.com/main and submit the information requested, including your name, email address and telephone number so that you can be contacted if you win. Names of winners will be published but contact details will not be made public.

Each verified cabinet will count as one entry for the prize draw – so the more cabinets you can find, the more chances you have of winning. At the end of September a prize draw will be conducted of verified entries, and the winners will be notified.
