Although it is difficult to determine your precise distance (especially as it is physical wire length, not street walking distance that is measured) a rough estimate can be provided to you. Simply call Bell Canada's High Speed Call Centre at 1-888-590-2375, provide the agent with your area code and phone number, and they'll perform a look-up in their database.

A numeric rating from '1' to '6' is given; this is a dimensionless number signifying your potential performance based on map distance. The higher the number, the closer your location to the central office, and the more likely you are to achieve optimal DSL speeds and reliability.

Please note that the rating given is a guideline only. Ultimately, the only way to determine actual performance is to have the service installed.
