Just North of the border, very close to general East Coast servers.
Ok Cool, he's in Spain and your in Canada ?
Just wanted to confirm. Thanks ;)
New Jersey & Cali are where the current servers
are located.
Russia has one or two as well.
I am in the Central US, so I am between both of the US servers.
In the US AdGuard DNS is fast, at least for me ;)

I use Google Public DNS. The ones from my ISP sometimes fail and then no one has internet access. DNS is changed directly in router settings so I don't have to bother setting up on every device.

OpenDNS is owned by Cisco.

Cisco has recently tried to re-brand themselves as a security company and i think they're doing a pretty good job.
They have alot of amazing enterprise tools that are all intergrated.

OpenDNS is part of their Umbrella package which is a great web filtering tool.

For free.. why not lol

I think OpenDNS is the best in terms of speed and blocking capability. They own phishtank.com and this has a huge list of phishing links. I tested and OpenDNS blocked many of those links

OpenDNS can be used to block ad domains, max. 25 domains
also some categories which can be chosen. Familyshield preselects 13 adult-related categories if I'm not mistaken

These are what I'm using for myself

Agreed, OpenDNS is also my choice. Cisco and their Umbrella are great. For routers though, you might need one that has a dedicated OpenDNS ip updater client or a custom client which can be configured for OpenDNS. As a fallback, they have installable clients for win/mac/linux if you don't have a compatible router.

Anyway, they are fast and they are great (for me at least).

If you are into custom firewalls, pfsense has a dedicated client and works awesomely with OpenDNS.
