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.

Sunday Times Best Buy

March 5, 2008

The Sunday Times have published an article in their supplement. The article focused on the best broadband providers in the UK. Not all of the providers are particularly Mac friendly. One that stood out was Zen internet.

Zen internet

Zen Internet gained a four stars in a recent Sunday Times survey into broadband providers.

Zen were described described as a ‘minimalist marvel with excellent support‘ providing an ‘efficient, no-frills service that earned top marks for customer service, (UK-based) technical support and reliability.

Only two other providers made the four out of five star grade (the highest rating that was awarded) in this survey, which polled subscribers to Computing Which? magazine.

Zen internet scored satisfaction ratings of over 80% for customer service, reliability of connection, along with online and telephone technical support.

Richard Tang, Managing Director of Zen Internet commented on their accolade;

“To be so highly rated in a Sunday Times survey for the second year in a row is a brilliant achievement for us. It is great to see that our aim to develop Internet services that focus on quality, reliability and service, is successfully reflected in customer opinions.”

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.
