+ - Is Google Public DNS Faster than Your ISP?-> 1

Submitted by WesternActor
WesternActor (300755) writes "When Google first announced its Public DNS two things come to mind, one that Google wanted to thwart some ISPs' common practice of intercepting mistyped URLs with a page of ads; and two that Google intended to gather still more data on the Internet habits of the world's users. However, it turns out that what Google Public DNS really provides is speed and security. According to one set of test results Google Public DNS is actually faster than ISP DNS. And, of course, like almost any DNS system, it's easy to configure."

Is Google Public DNS Faster than Your ISP?

  • It was about half as fast as my ISP's DNS... which is still pretty damn fast. Even if it were faster, though, Google doesn't need to know what DNS lookups I'm doing.
