MacOSX.2 and BtOpenworld

Warning: If you are an OSX user in the UK who is using BTOpenworld‘s broadband service and is thinking of upgrading to Appe’s latest operating system OSX.2, then be aware that the Alcatel SpeedTouch USB modem does not work with Jaguar and you will be left without any kind of web access. There are no functioning drivers for the Alcatel modem compatible with OSX.2, and no information on when there will be. I have discovered this to my cost, and I’m sure I’m not the only one.

BTOpenworld have also helpfully declared that they no don’t even support OSX (“It’ll work, but we can’t give you any help on it and stuff”). I’m eager to spread the word on this one – and I’m also eager to be a bridge for any updates people might have. Mail me.
