    I am on a fiber to home connection and before OpenDNS I was getting 25 Mb/s now I am down to 7 Mb/s

    It seems your understanding about DNS is not sufficient enough to see that DNS is hardly related to download speed.  DNS is the phone book of the internet, not the phone lines.

    Whatever, if you're not convinced, go back to the previously used DNS service to verify that the download speed returns to 25 Mb/s again.  If it doesn't, it's not OpenDNS.

    actually dns can effect throughput it all depends on where the traffic is being directed to.

    Yes, we know.  And this again depends on your Geo location and the one of the DNS service you use.

    So, if you're using a far distance DNS service, you may get provided with IP address information of far distance services.  You can check what OpenDNS data center location you're using, if at all:

       nslookup -type=txt which.opendns.com.

    Roblitz is the type of tech that exhibits a superior attitude when responding to a question, with the apparent goal to either showing his superior knowledge, or showing the other persons apparent ignorance under the guise of trying to help. Hopefully, he is NOT in tech support. He is not the type of person I would hire for tech support and I do hire tech support people. He may be right, but I would ignore any more comments from him, if I were you. He does not represent what good tech support offers.
