Phone call about internet speed SCAM

We got a phone call today, well a number of them about checking the internet speed. They did a speed test told me my ping was too low and then attempted to get access to my computer. I put the phone down. They then called again a different person and I asked them to tell me my account number and they said they couldn't give out that information. I'm sure its a scam has anyone else had this?

Re: Phone call about internet speed SCAM

Yes, these are scam attempts. Do not allow them remote access to your computer. Best approach is to hang up on them and not engage with them. Refer below for a similar recent discussion.
