The service ceased in December 1993, only 20 months after being launched. Two thousand customers were with Rabbit at the time the service closed. The failure of Rabbit can be mainly attributed to the fall in costs of analogue mobile networks Cellnet and Vodafone, which also accepted incoming calls. Hutchison Whampoa lost around $183m from the failure of Rabbit but later went on to found the successful Orange mobile phone network.
Many of the Rabbit CT2 telephones were sold with a home base station as a home CT2 cordless telephone system and these continued to be used for many years after the closure of the Rabbit network.

Multiple Items & Job Lots
If you're looking to fit out an entire set and need many items, we are happy to quote a discounted rate based on the quantity of items.
The term dry hire means to hire an item without having a technician supplied to support it. Most of our small items are available to dry hire, but some of the more complicated equipment that require specialist knowledge are not. In these cases we will deliver the item(s) personally and set them up for you. Please call us for a quotation based on the hire period and location.
