Default Google DNS

Removed for now... seems to break location based apps. Will see if we can figure this one out

Lower latency in what regards? Connecting to the same server, google dns is always lower? How do you test this accurately?

Lowered latency with increased rendering times? How does that work..? Throughput should be the same, regardless of the DNS used.

Rendering probably wasn't the right word... if u notice on 3g once u hit go it sits for a few seconds and then begins to load the page. After the flash the page starts to load almost immediately

loaded this up on RubiX 1.9.5. Before, Speed Test app would use the server in CA and give me ~120-150ms latency. Now it thinks I'm in KS for some reason (I'm in CA), so I get 300+. Not sure if it's the app freaking out or the DNS change affected it.

And when I try going in and changing the server manually, it doesn't even give me CA option because it's too far away from KS lol.

it's california, I should've clarified, sorry. Hmm weird then why it only gives me choices of KS and the states near it...
Oh and I use "Speed Test" app.

Ok, I tried it again and it finally gave me Modesto, CA server. My latency is now 55 ms down from 100+. So this change definitely helps, thank you!
