BeeCawz, I'm an Eggzpert!
Better for me, that is. Maybe not everyone.
And 18.104.22.168 is a 'Major' DNS:
The owner of the IP address 22.214.171.124
(1dot1dot1dot1.cloudflare-dns.com - Google Inc.)
is located at (Australia - ).
Really, my discovery was with brief drops and lost connections with Tune-In Radio and my Magic-Jerk calls dropping, and a performance change when using another DNS. That convinced me DNS DOES INDEED have a quality of speed and performance, not just Name Look-ups. I don't know the tech details on why, I just know my own, local results.
Once I started playing around with different DNS address and all of a sudden my VOIP calls and Tune-In Radio held up much longer or don't drop or hiccup like they did with my local DNS, it was 'game' on.
I got my fastest speed with 'Fast' when I changed it to nearby DNS (not my ISP), from a NameBench result. It soon, had gone south for a number of days in a row, and I had 'Fast' speeds on my Vizio Tablet around the upper teens and into the 20's. Too low! Not normal for me.
Once I changed it to 126.96.36.199 some weeks back, BOOM! The mobile App 'Fast' now reports around 40+ of my ISP speed of 60Mbps. 188.8.131.52 wasn't the best in performance, for me, on average, and I think it had 'dips/drops' with my VOIP/Radio streaming. (I'll use it again at some point and check all my DNS entries over again and rank them based on my local experience with them.)
So, I use NameBench and my VOIP/Radio streaming testing to pick the best DNS for my location. 'Your Vary may Mileage'.
