Will try it tonight. If Google's as good as they look, this might own. I already use Google Voice to SMS over data.

I tried and my speeds increased from 315 to 458 and 22 to 87 kbps, download and upload respectively (tested in a 8th floor office bldg).

I won't say I don't believe you, but it is impossible that only using another DNS server increases the upload/download speed.

Actually, that's not true. It has to do with pipe bandwidth and speed. Verizon obviously isn't as big as Google, and they also can handle better servers, it also has to do with where you are in the world, and on their network, and what you are doing. Google's DNS servers are configured and made for SPEED and speed only. Verizons DNS can also be bottlenecked to ensure "data consistancy" as they have came out and said before.

Chris says it better than I can though.

LOL I got it thanks. Speedtest i was getting 1.95down and 1.48up before but using this I get either a really good test score or really bad. ex. one time it will be 2.59down and 1.75 up and next time ill get 0.25down0 .5up-- permissions are different for these files as apposed to the files in the zip. i changed them to match the directory but it diddnt change anything
