Re: Google DNS versus ours

said by derekm:

Curious: where in the network are these measurements taking place?

That's a very good question, though I suppose it shouldn't make any difference -- all of our home traffic passes through TSI on its way elsewhere, so at that point it should still be quicker to use the "local" TSI DNS.

But lots of other more capable ISPs have tried and failed to get this right. Let's see how it works here once rolled out to us masses.

Yeah, it's relative, assuming the DNS server is before the xconnect to Google, which would make sense.

I was more asking if we're looking at 10ms + first hop RTT (done at NOC), or say 2ms + first hop RTT (done at home).
