    Exclamation Fastest DNS for Broadband !

    Hi Guys,

    I saw hundreds of thousand threads and blogs on internet about Which is fastest and reliable DNS for broadband?

    So, after few hours search I found that the BSNL's own system DNS were fastest for BB (at least as per my search and research ).

    Not Open DNS nor the Google Public DNS; it's BSNL's DNS is Fastest and Reliable.


    I say so because, I download couple of software and also from RUN command testing.

    Take look of few result of mine -
    1] From RUN command Result from RUN command.jpg


    2] From software testing Result from namebech.jpg

    I use following software's - DNS Bechmark & namebench


    Waiting for Reply !

    Thanks !

    I saw hundreds of thousand threads and blogs on internet about Which is fastest and reliable DNS for broadband?
    That's because it is an absolutely overhyped subject. People like to change something and then believe that they have made a huge improvement. It's called go-faster stripes.

    I am very cynical about most of the claims --- but they are not all false! I have spent days watching my browser saying "cannot find the server at ....". Very often that is a problem with the DNS. At that time, in my case, it was widely known that BSNL's DNSs were overloaded and performing badly. A number of people were experiencing the same thing.

    If you believe you have a DNS problem, then do just what you have done: run the various tools to get a recommendation of which server to use, use it, believe it, and have peace of mind. Your own ISP's servers should be fastest.

    Be happy, and don't lisen to those "My dns is faster than yours" merchants. Really, even if it is, they will be gaining hardly anything at all.

    DNS --- don't worry about it! Unless you need to

    BSNL DNS is a waste of time. May work good in certain conditions, but overall, it is not reliable. Use OpenDNS or Google DNS. You can see the difference.

    Thnks for Reply !

    "I think it is waste of time to convince anyone to use any particular DNS." as Nick H said.

    If u see my above stated test result from various software as well as pretty reliable test from RUN command, there is at least 50% margin between OPEN DNS + Google DNS and BSNL's DNS.

    As u say "May work good in certain conditions, but overall, it is not reliable" , there is no server in whole world that will perform 100% at any time of the day.

    As far as my test concern, I tested it 5 different times of the day. And the results mentioned above were tested 11.30pm (which is, I think is a prime time for net surfing, downloading etc.) at day before this thread posted.

    So, for me and for my connection, BSNL's DNS are fastest among the other DNS.

    I have my personal experience to count on. I have used Google, Open DNS and BSNL DNS. BSNL DNS were the worst in my case. Even Google was slow to an extent. Using Open DNS since last 6 months. Also tried Comodo and Norton DNS. Didn't felt any huge difference.
