    Hi Joshzone90

    In regard to data centers, you can see our total global data centers here:  http://system.opendns.com/

    and here: http://www.opendns.com/network-map/

    As you can see, we have a data centers in Ashburn VA and New York City, and we just added a data center in Toronto.  It might be worth clarifying your ISP and their peering arrangement with our Support team to see if we can improve it in that respect.

    Thanks!
    Matt

    Not having real issues. Just doesn't seem as fast as my providers DNS. My provider is GWI, which is a local isp, but I have noticed the same with Fairpoint also. GWI uses Level 3, just like everyone else around this area.

    To see what OpenDNS location you're using, you would execute the command:

        nslookup -type=txt which.opendns.com.

    If this is not the closest location from a networking standpoint, then, as Matt said, "it might be worth clarifying your ISP and their peering arrangement".

    In addition, to compare OpenDNS with others, you'll want to run a benchmark program like https://www.grc.com/dns/benchmark.htm or such.

    "Just doesn't seem as fast as" is not really an objective criteria for anything.  As the site above says: “You can't optimize it until you can measure it”.

    I have Spectrum and University of Maine system for ISP. Just feel that having a server closer would be a plus, as everything Maine, , New Hampshire, Vermont pass through Boston.
