@vfrmedia they also use OSM on the "services near you" map, but have refused to share the postbox data with us :(
@CjMalone bizzarely (according to Ublock Origin) RM appear to be also feeding the location data from their site to a separate commercial company (Woosmap) as well as using OSM.
They were very reluctant to divulge the postbox data as an FOI request in 2013 (although eventually did so) claiming it had "commercial value" (this was the year RM was privatised, which I don't think is a coincidence)
@vfrmedia I think Woosmap is the provider of the OSM base map.
I was talking to them in April-June 2021 when OSM hit 60% of post boxes about this, they still have no plans to release the post box data. :(
