Does your provider manipulate your Internet access?

Did you ever wonder why a search engine page is shown when you enter a wrong URL? This may be because your Internet access provider manipulates the results returned to your computer! My Internet provider Alice for example returns an AOL search result if a “HTTP/1.1 302” status is found.

You can check your own connection with a nice tool called Netalysr (developed at the University of California).
