Our top 10 broadband promise
The table above features the Top 10 broadband providers for Apple Macs. These are the best mac friendly ADSL broadband ISPs (Internet Service Providers) available in the UK. Compare the best broadband deals for Apple users.

Mac Tips:

  • When it comes to broadband speed and download limit, you get a reasonable choice of mac compatible providers. However, Mac Broadband wouldn’t recommend using an ADSL broadband connection of less the 2MB for everyday home use.
  • You can probably expect to rack up between 2-5Gb of downloads per month if you surf the internet and download the occasional music file or video. If you are going to be on the internet all day, everyday then go for over 8Gb of downloads per month or even unlimited broadband.
  • UK ADSL broadband providers have a tendency to get you in with a low introductory offer and then hike up the prices. So be sure to look at the Total Year 1 cost when selecting broadband for your Apple mac computer or laptop.
  • Mac Broadband would recommend that you should choose your mac compatible broadband ISP by its monthly download limit and Total Year 1 cost.

* Top 10 broadband notes: I do not intend to make recommendations on the broadband products of one supplier over another. The final decision on which broadband company to use is down to ‘you’ the reader of this website. The top 10 broadband table above is compiled from feedback I receive from this site’s readers, the most visited ISPs from users leaving this website, the information on other broadband websites and broadband industry awards.

** Broadband pricing notes: The names and prices of broadband products do change. Please check the final price of your broadband connection on the supplier pages. The prices on this website are for guidance purposes only.

*** Madasafish Broadband notes: If you use the Madasafish broadband link highlighted above and enter the promotion code “1192819″ into the promotion/referral code box, you will also receive £10 OFF your Madasafish Broadband bill. We think this is the best Madasafish deal available on the web – so if you are planning on using Madasafish for your mac broadband connection then click on our website link and get yourself a cracking discount. Alternatively, visit our current broadband offer page to read more about the Madasafish discount promotion

**** VirginMedia notes: 10mb L Broadband £5 a month for the first 3 months rising to £14 thereafter – when taken with a Virgin Media phone line. 10mb L Broadband £15 a month for the first 6 months rising to £20 thereafter. VirginMedia also offer a 28 day – money back guarantee – so you can try them out, risk free.

This list will be updated as we research and find new ISPs providing ADSL broadband for mac computer users. We plan to review each mac ISP in the UK and as such this list will be added to.

Feel that there is a Broadband company that simply must be reviewed by me? Leave a comment & I’ll follow it up …
