Thread: Curious re: Mac & AOL
11-21-2003, 07:56 AM #1dantesflameGuestCurious re: Mac & AOL
In the UK you can't go AOL with broadband on a Mac - I think Demon is the ISP of choice for a lot of Mac user's here. Is this the same stateside or does AOL provide a broadband service for Mac user's over there ? General experiences of using Broadband on Mac appreciated - any modem issues ? etc. Gotta be honest after fitting in filters to phone line and loading in drivers it was just plug and play on my present m$ and never been a problem.
Will set up a special thread for AOL bashing another time for those inclined LOL for now please accept it has never been a problem using them for me, doesn't stop me doing anything and my wife feels comfortable using it. Just interested to know if AOL broadband is only unavailabe to certain countries and if so anyone know why and if it is likely to be sorted out soon / ever ??

AOL has broadband, I havn't used AOL since 93-94, but they have always been good to macintosh. I would expect the other side of the globe to get the same broadband in a year or two, its fairly new over here for AOL..

In the US, there (was? is?) a "bring your own access" plan, where you would sign up with another ISP (Broadband or dialup) and use AOL over that internet connection. It was cheaper than the normal AOL plan, but of course you had to pay for the ISP as well. If this is available where you are, it might be a way to keep the AOL services and still get broadband speeds.
Regular broadband on a Mac is plug-and-play. Just connect your (cable/dsl) modem to your Mac with an ethernet cable. No drivers needed.
