Re: BT speedtester hacked ?

Yes, and that is what I can`t understand....  Undecided
when I run the links, they give weird "test errors"... yet when I run it from the bookmark on my page, it works fine....  Huh
Perhaps BT need to be told about it.... Roll eyes

No - simply altering the URL - the message is simply part of the URL, so you can alter it to say anything you like.

Re: BT speedtester hacked ?

Well Well I came in this thread to see if I had this " So called " Problem with the speed test only to see that this threads a very LATE April fool Gag, Suppose it makes sense seeing as its been left in general Riff Raff, Very devious indeed.

Re: BT speedtester hacked ?

No modified URL just straight from google search on "speedtester BT"
and no use of manipulation.
So whats gone on?
