In August 2002 we launched RABBIT as an 18 month project aimed at helping small businesses in areas that could not otherwise obtain broadband.
After an extended term of four years Rabbit has now closed for Applications.
Businesses based in the West Midlands may still be able to receive assistance via the West Midland Networking Company and local business links.

In the Four years since it started RABBIT has dealt with over 6200 applications, thousands more queries and has helped the number of satellite and wireless suppliers rise from half a dozen to over two hundred.
We have directly helped over 3100 businesses obtain broadband that would not otherwise have been possible – and have indirectly aided at least as many again – and we have been delighted to see that thousands of domestic users in the areas covered by our assisted projects have also benefited by signing up independently with the suppliers that have been induced to cover the more rural areas.
