    To get a faster internet speed, I’ll tell you about free OpenDNS service. OpenDNS is one of the most popular free DNS services that was started to provide an alternative method to those who were discontented with their existing DNS.

    By following these simple steps, you can tell your computer to use OpenDNS’s DNS servers instead of the ones your service provider automatically uses:

    1. To get a faster internet speed using OpenDNS, first open Control panel.

    2. Go to Network and Internet options.

    3. Now click on Network and Sharing Center



    4. Click on your Internet Connection and then click on Properties.

    5. Highlight the Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) and click on Properties.



    6. Now choose the following DNS server addresses to get a faster internet speed:

    Preferred DNS server: 208.67.222.222
    Alternate DNS server: 208.67.220.220


    You are using OpenDNS’s servers now which helps you to to get a faster internet speed.

    To Configure IPv6:

    Highlight the Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6) and click on Properties, and choose the following DNS server addresses:

    Preferred DNS server: 2620:0:ccc::2
    Alternate DNS server: 2620:0:ccd::2

    Note:

    There are more benefits of OpenDNS other than getting a faster internet speed. Usually if the DNS server of your service provider goes down you become unable to use the internet, but with OpenDNS method, even if the service providers DNS server is down, you can surf the internet normally.

    Noticeable improvements in page loading times with both OpenDns and Google Dns but dl speeds remain pretty much same. Difficult to choose between the two, both are equally good.
