  • top 10 broadband providers for macs

Top 10 broadband, April 2008

May 1, 2008

The results are in. The Top 10 broadband providers for Apple users are as follows (results for the month of April 2008):

  1. Madasafish
  2. Sky broadband
  3. Be there
  4. AOL broadband
  5. BT broadband
  6. Zen internet
  7. TalkTalk
  8. Virgin Media
  9. Plus net
  10. Demon internet

Overall, it has been a relatively quiet month in April compared to March. Madasafish are still swomping the competition in terms of interest from our readers. But remember, it is the best deals that ultimately count and the offerings from Sky broadband, Virgin Media & Plus net are still worth considering alongside Madasafish.

You pays your money and yous take your pick – Madasafish is still proving a firm Apple mac favourite.

Even Apple viruses are fun

March 11, 2008

We got sent this great link on You Tube – it is of a fun (not malicious) virus than can be installed onto an Apple mac laptop. The virus uses the in built levelling hardware to create some interesting screen changes when you move the laptop around. Its fun, enjoy.

How is the rank calculated?

What we do is measure the popularity of broadband providers that our website visitors read and then go on to look at. We then add the data up and sort it into a rank. All the data is anonymous.

New Apple mac compatible broadband providers added

January 28, 2008

We are please to announce that we are now in the position to increase our mac compatible broadband table from five ADSL providers to ten. We have had more time to research the broadband market and have now added (in no particular order) …

Zen internet, Sky broadband, Demon internet, Plusnet and Be broadband to our table of ‘Apple mac compatible broadband‘ providers. This takes us up to a total of ten providers – which between them – offer around fifty different broadband packages.

For now, we have updated our tables to show you the best broadband products from each of the ISPs and ranked the best products in order of the most popular amongst our visitors. As we find time to write them, you will see all the providers and their respective ADSL products linked off from our table of Apple Mac compatible ADSL providers.

We will be consistently recording and reviewing our consumer data and will keep the top-10 broadband table updated at least twice every month.

As always. If you have any feedback on the Apple friendly providers selected or the products featured then drop us an email to editor [at] macbroadband.co.uk & we’ll follow it up.

Most popular mac broadband ISP

December 6, 2007

We have been running Mac Broadband for about 6 months now. During this time we have been receiving feedback on mac users’ broadband experiences and tracking which broadband companies our readers have been signing-up with.

It is interesting to note that our readers have been voting with their feet.

The first Mac broadband poll

The first Mac broadband survey/poll shows that the following mac compatible ISPs are receiving the most sign-ups from Mac Broadband’s readers are:

  1. Madasafish Max
  2. BT Option 1
  3. Pipex Midi

Notes: chances are that our Madasafish promotion could be skewing results. But, it seems that the two BT owned ISPs (Madasafish and BT broadband) are receiving most of our readers’ attention. We received a lot of interest in Pipex over the summer period – maybe it was the Hoffmeister effect – from Pipex’s then advertising campaign.

As recently reported; Zen internet, Madasafish, Demon internet and BT-owned Plus.net all made it into the Mac User Awards 2007 – so we will be adding their broadband profiles to this website and working up reviews on them over the Christmas period.
