How to find your Latitude and Longitude using Google Maps

Google Maps is a web application that allows users to find and search for locations, get directions, and view street view maps using a scalable, virtual map interface via their browser. The service is powered by high-resolution satellite images, allowing users to zoom in on maps, sometimes down to street level, through the Street View feature.
This article provides details for how to get longitude and latitude for any given location using Google Maps. Your co-ordinates will offer the best information for nbn™ and your service provider to locate you.
1. Go to

Google Maps2.  Enter the city, town, country, address, or other location you want to find the longitude and latitude for and click the “Search Maps” button.

  1. Hello, I am located at 29 Haas Road Booubyjan (-25.893396, 151.957114) and having trouble with connection issues. We are not in an area that can receive NBN unless we resort to Satellite (I have made arrangements with Harbour Sat to install but would prefer another method if it could mean we get a fair bit of data). We can only get Telstra through a high gain twin Yagi aerial through one of Telstra’s next g gateway devices but it flucturates depending on whether conditions. I also have a portable 4g device that also connects to an aerial which works better than the gateway but still fluctuates at times. I had been interested in the radio towers that Red Wifi are doing in the Dalby area but they wont look here until I have 10 people lined up. We are curently paying around $300 for 40 gbs per month. Just wondering if you would be interested in helping us out in finding a reasonable solution on how we can get a better internet service here. My phone number is 0741686212.
