[public-dns-discuss] Re: Slow internet with Google DNS since this weekend

Ditto here. Often, especially apps would take a long time to connect when using the Google DNS. Returning to "obtain automatically" always remedies the issue.

For whatever reason, Google isn't acknowledging this to an issue but I noticed way back in the early 2000s. I tried again recently to see if things have changed, but nope. They haven't.

So I have been using google dns for a few years and this weekend I noticed my internet was slower than normal

I troubleshooted my computer, router and modem and was not able to fix it

I then put my dns back to my defaut ISP and low and behold my speeds where back up to normal

I can reproduce everytime

Im using Videotron for my ISP in Montreal canada

I can reproduce the issue with various devices connected to my router (tablets, ipad, phones, computers)

Not sure what to do at this point other than keep my ISP DNS

I have a 120MB down/20MB up connection

See screenshot for comparison. This is on same computer and same connection a few min apart after switching DNS

Im using a Netgear R7000 with firmware V1.0.7.6_1.1.99 but also tested dd-wrt.K3_R7000 and tested various speed test sites also

I have no special settings that changed and been running V1.0.7.6_1.1.99 by default for about a month. Issue only started this weekend

Any ideas?
