slow speed - check your DNS servers

Just as an FYI to anyone else having speed issues you may want to check which DNS servers you are using, I had the google public DNS (8.8.8.8, 8.8.4.4) set and speeds dipped after a time.

I switched back to BT's DNS servers and instantly speed was back up.

I'm going to run tests on other DNS servers and I'll post my results.

Re: slow speed - check your DNS servers

upon checking it would seem that the Google DNS service was not working for some reason, switched to OpenDNS and it all works fine so far.
