It promised faster internet, and maybe. I did the speedtest thing and I'm now getting much more consistent values of 5.1 - my record is 5.28, but my graph looks like a profile of the rocky mountains, speedtests would vary from 2.x up to 4.x with that one nice spike at 5.28. In a half dozen tests since installing DNS my chart has leveled out at about 4.8-5.1 with only minor variation. Upload has not changed much, a little more consistent at 1.1 up.

But now what do I do with this new service?
