Someone will need to confirm though, not positive.
It's the length of the LOOP, not how far you are from the CO. As a practical matter, those are usually the same, but in the case of the lineman on the pole, the loop would still be the same length unless he broke the circuit and terminated at the pole for the test, instead of just tapping it (the usual test method).
