Broadband providers TalkTalk and Plusnet are interested in signing up for BT Openreach’s trial of RABIT, it has been reported.

According to Recombu, the Rapid Assessment BT Incident Tracker (RABIT) system is designed to help prevent cable theft by alerting the police to incidents as they occur.

It also helps BT identify which customers have been affected, allowing the firm to restore their telecoms services as soon as possible.

BT recently announced plans to make the diagnostic tool available to other broadband providers over a three-month trial period.

Neither Plusnet nor TalkTalk has confirmed its plans, but the firms - which deliver broadband services via BT Openreach's wholesale network - are believed to have expressed an interest in the pilot.

The trial will begin on July 12th and will run until October 5th.

However, Recombu said there is no deadline for applications, meaning broadband providers can join the scheme at any point.
