Calling your favorite carriers and asking if they can get to the address
of the building is the easiest.  Don't overlook the power company.

If there's an entrance facility room with conduit coming in, see if you
can figure out which way they run outside the building and figure out
which poles or manholes they go to.  Buying beers for an outside plant
guy from the local cableco or telco can also help ;-)
