BT change their 'speedtest' and 'dslchecker' websites...


[link to this post]
 
I notice BT have changed their 'speedtest/IP profile' and 'availability' websites:

http://www.speedtest.btwholesale.com and http://www.dslchecker.bt.com/

Unfortunately the biggest change seems the introduction of some purple text!
I was hoping BT would revamp the IP Profile checker so that it runs without FLASH as this is dying out - but sadly it still uses it.

Not the best website revamp I've come across wink

I'm not sure if this has been discussed elsewhere and I've missed it?
I originally posted here as the 'BT speedtest' seems to be a BTW thing...

Anyway - since my last post it looks as if BT no longer require users to have FLASH installed to use their speedtest to see their IP Profile.

It seems to be just as temperamental but that's a BT thing rather than Adobe FLASH!

EDIT:
BT's speedtest FAQ page still mentions FLASH *is* required...!

Just tried to check my IP Profile as I've come home and found we've had a power cut earlier in the day.
Now I'm seeing:

"We have detected that you do not have Flash installed on your device.In order to complete this test Flash must be installed and enabled.Please click the link above in order to install the latest Flash player."

So it looks like BT may have reversed their non-FLASH code?!



THANKS FOR ALL THE INTEREST TBB PEOPLE - tongue
