    Been using it since I saw one of your posts. Which has been the fastest for you? For me it was Yandex and one of those US Level 3. Haven't tried most.

    Still sticking to AdGuard servers here, and having no issues, I use them even when I have AirVPN connected
    and smooth sailing here.

    Oh yeah, I missed Open DNS. Google dns was surprisingly slow for me.

    I used Adguard dns for a while. But some site detected adblocking. I disabled ublock origin and other adblock but still got detected.

    Used DynDns for years at home but their Internet Guide is no more. After that was using OpenDNS but grew tired of it. Switched to Norton DNS awhile back and all is well.

    I use my own Pi-Hole DNS-Server on a KVM with Aduard DNS.
    Filters: (all of them)
    The Big Blocklist Collection

    A very, very good protection to block ads, malicious links and Windows 10 telemetry. My router use my DNS-Server. No ads on mobile phones yeey!

    @edit: My server also blocks Opencandy so I doesn't need Unchecky!
