Default Open DNS Did Wonders For My Connection

I got tired of using my ISPs DNS servers. So I started using Treewalk
But recently, I strarting using OpenDNS. It has done wonders in speeding up my Internet connection.

No, no this isn't going to affect your overall speeds. It just reduces the time to do DNS lookup's to resolve a URL to a IP address.

I'll have to agree with Konaguy's assessment, it sure is quicker than RR's dns servers.

The difference was immediate. I stuck it in my settings (Which was really easy). Now I'm flying . Its way better than HawTel's DNS servers and
the DNS software I am using.

so basically your latency (time it takes after you type a web address to actually start loading that page) is quicker?
