BT Unleashes the RABIT to Catch Cable Thieves

By Sam Gibbs on at

We heard that BT had had enough of its cables getting pinched, but now it’s unleashed the RABIT on the thieving bastards, which should help keep your broadband flowing freely and uninterrupted.

Unfortunately it’s not a furry little critter that nips anyone and everyone who touches the shiny copper without permission, it’s just an alarm system. But the new Rapid Assessment Bt Incident Tracker should mean a rapid rozzer response to catch the cable pikies red handed.

Considering cable theft costs our public purse some £700 million a year, I hope RABIT bites a nice big chunk out of the next pair of hands trying to thieve the pipes to our sweet, sweet internet. [BT]
