    What makes you think that CloudFlare DNS is faster than OpenDNS?
    Did you run a benchmark test like https://www.grc.com/dns/benchmark.htm or what else?

    If CloudFlare is really faster than OpenDNS, it might be that you are closer to their data center than to OpenDNS' data center.

    I checked out 1.1.1.1    My initial impression is that CloudFlare does not appear to mention any kind of protection or blocking options as OpenDNS does, and that probably takes a few extra milliseconds to implement.  Seems to me the question should be..."Can 1.1.1.1  protect me like OpenDNS does?"  Speed is not the only consideration to me.

    You do not really ask this question in the OpenDNS forum, do you?  This should be documented by CloudFlare and may need to be raised in the CloudFlare forum if there is any.

    The results on dnsperf.com are the big reason to believe OpenDNS is not as fast as CloudFlare.

    I have a concern regarding dnsperf.com (https://www.dnsperf.com/#!dns-resolvers) that they measure the DNS performance from their own servers which is irrelevant regarding the results an internet user would get from his location with e.g. the benchmark tool I linked to above.

    Also, would you even become aware if a DNS query is answered within 10ms instead of 20 ms?  Rather not!

    roblitz, your responses are a big arrogant to say the least.  Do you work for OpenDNS?  If so, I would suggest responding a bit more professional going forward.

    Thanks!

    reyneveld, no, I do not work for OpenDNS.  What did you contribute to the topic "Why OpenDNS is not faster as 1.1.1.1 ?"?  Nothing!  Thank you for nothing.

    Rather pointless discussion I think as the difference in time between one or the other services isn’t really conceivable. It isn’t like your schedule is going to run late that day because you had to wait 10ms extra for your device to receive a dns query sent 20ms ago. Yawn!
