BTopenworld has no plans for implementing Mac OS X support in its products at this time, the company has revealed.

The company announced Mac-compatible ADSL in February 2001, five months after launching the service for PC users.

Though BTopenworld's PR team was unavailable to answer Macworld's enquiries, a customer services representative claimed: “Mac OS X may cause you problems.”

A BTopenworld technical support representative confirmed the team don't support Mac OS X. “We have had no training in that yet,” he said.

“It's something BT is looking at, but there's no support for and no schedule for introducing OS X support yet,” he explained.

He suggested the drivers needed for Mac OS X to communicate with openworld's modems may not have been created yet.
