Did you try Cloudflare Free DNS? 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1?

By the way, Why don't you use Google DNS for both P and S?
Cloudflare is new so couldn’t recall & pings are high.
Using diff means more redundancy plus sometimes an address not having entry in one dns could be found in second one.

I shifted to this plan, paid for the 12 months, and getting faster than advertised speeds. :D

Got the ACT promo (100mbps 500gb for around 850 rs with tax and 0 installation). Its speed to non peered servers is just as worse as Hathway (around 10mbps max outside of speedtest). It gives ok speed in video sites like vimeo like Hathway too. I guess the only benefit over hathway is that it does not seem to do the file name resolution peering that Hathway seemed to do and pings are better. Speedtest by Ookla - The Global Broadband Speed Test

However, ACT did end up installing their switch box thingy in my house. Since they said it would consume only little power, i thought it would be an additional plug only but after the drilling and nailing wires, they said they have to connect it directly to the line. I hope it is safe. Nonetheless I've lost trust in ACT. Next time I'll take Airtel or local provider.

Anyone can confirm if the switch box battery thing installation they did is safe? I am really pissed off since the whole installation took a grand 4 hrs and damaged walls. I like that they have done a neat job but would have preffered if they just installed a wire and left like most ISPs, and later I could extend if I wanted.

ACT is nutty over banning almost every p2p site they can get their hands on, and looks like they monitor traffic too which site one is visiting as sites which were working fine for few days, in next 24hrs after discovering them they got blocked.

Also they add up lot of fake usage data already some threads are posted here..however they keep adding additional data at the same time to be in the news, they have added free 250GB data for cricket packs.
