What's New at

Telephone Central Office Building Pictures

 

Here's what's new at the Telephone Central Office Building Pictures website.

May 16, 2021

New pictures added to Area Code 315 in upstate New York.

May 2, 2021

Oh Canada! Oh British Columbia! I finally was able to make progress on Canada for the first time in forever. Worked on both Area Codes 604 and 250. For both area codes, I focused on the main switches and not the remotes. Some of these switches are very hard to located using GSV since they are quite remote.

April 21, 2021

Found that I hadn't updated Virginia in a while. Refreshed and added some new pictures in Area Code 276.

While I was at it, I refreshed the photos for Washington, DC (Area Code 202).

April 20, 2021

Someone sent me an E-mail saying that my Salt Lake City Main picture was old. (Heck, there are a lot of old pictures on the site.) But that led me to update Utah this week. So I updated as much of Area Codes 435 and 801 as I could. Like Arizona, there was a decrease in the number of actual central offices due to deprecation. We lost 10 in Area Code 435. However, we did have an overall gain of pictures for both area codes. So for the most part, Utah is now complete for the foreseeable future.

April 14, 2021

Extensive work was done for Arizona listings for the first time in the better part of 10 years. A number of photos of CenturyLink buildings still showed the old Qwest logo. Area Codes 480, 602, and 623 have had most of their photos refreshed. Area Codes 520 and 928 have had selected CenturyLink photos refreshed.

April 9, 2021

Added new pictures and refreshed a few for the following Area Codes in Illinois: 630, 708, 847.

April 3, 2021

New pictures added to downstate New York (NYC/Long Island). Filled in gaps for Area Codes 212, 718, 516 and 631. So Downstate NY is mostly complete, I'll move on to Upstate NY eventually.

March 24, 2021

It's obvious that the idea of a consolidation for softswitch nodes is common across the United States. I went through all of Arizona (which for the most part has been complete for several years) and based upon the changes in terminology and reporting, a number of central offices that used to have unique CLLI codes in Area Codes 520 and 928 no longer do, and have been deprecated to digital nodes. Therefore these are no longer "active" as far as the list is concerned. The pictures will remain, but the ratecenters will be listed in blue, and the former CLLI codes will say "was" in front of them. In 520, we lost 8 central offices, and in 928 we lost 9, for a grand total of 17. Even though this reduces our overall count by a few, this also reduces the amount of central offices total.

March 23, 2021

Remember what I said about North Dakota? (see below.) Kansas is pretty much the same way. I assume that a lot of small mom-and-pop telcos have done the same thing. But now Kansas is in good shape picture wise. Area Codes 913 and 816 are mostly complete, while Area Codes 620 and 785 hit on the larger places.

March 7, 2021

Added new pictures for Illinois (618).

February 28, 2021

Added new pictures for Illinois (217 and 309)

February 18, 2021

Oregon (503 and 541) pictures have been refreshed.

February 17, 2021

Another challenge was North Dakota (701). You'd think it would be rather easy, but it isn't. It's mostly a bunch of small independents, but they are more advanced than the the big boys and moved on to softswitches. But in doing so, the small communities that used to have remote switches are just now nodes that no longer have their own identity or unique CLLI code. So they are just swallowed up by the main switch that serves the small independent. In the end I managed to get a few, but not as many as I would have liked because of all the consolidation. So major towns are represented here now, but it will be difficult for non CenturyLink areas since these places no longer have CLLI codes.

February 15, 2021

Added new pictures for Mississippi (662).

Refreshed some pictures for Nevada (702 and 775).

February 14, 2021

You think you're done, and when you go back and check and see later that you're not. Not only that, but you made a lot of mistakes along the way. But the last time I worked on Maryland was in 2011, nearly 10 years go as I write this. A lot has changed since then, and a lot of places that weren't on GSV now are. And now GSV uses a lot better resolution for their photos than they did back in 2011. So I overhauled both area codes 301 and 410 for Maryland with as many new pictures as I could, and added quite a few in the process. So hopefully Maryland is as done as it is going to get for several years to come and is mostly complete.
