Mobile broadband for macs
In theory all mobile broadband providers should work with an Apple mac computer. The actual mobile dongle itself is an uncomplicated piece of hardware that simply acts as a mobile modem.
The only area I can see users getting into trouble with mobile broadband is with the software installation. As with all things not all broadband providers are created equal, and some are much better at providing Apple mac support than others.
Please leave a comment on this page if you have had a tough (or brilliant) experience from a particular broadband provider.
In the UK, you can receive mobile broadband of the traditional mobile providers or from the traditional broadband companies that are trying to get into the mobile broadband space. Lastly, you can also buy mobile broadband dongles from a range of high street retailers. Links to all of these are below.
