In an effort to make my Verizon FiOS 50/25 Mbps service the fastest it can be, I've been trying out various DNS services. One thing about the ISP connection being so fast is that you really notice when you have DNS or browser lags.
What is the deal with using namebench or DNSbench to test and identify the fastest DNS server? Both reported that Verizon's local server was the fastest but is that really the case? I know it won't provide phishing and other protection from OpenDNS, but what's the real story? I thought one of the primary reasons to use OpenDNS was to speed things up.
And, let me hear it from you... how does OpenDNS compare with Google public DNS?
