What's wrong with BT's DNS servers????

When I ran the Namebench app - the BT servers always come up on top.

Yes it does. There was quite an extensive config example on the Draytek and other forums that explain why this happens and how to "correct it"

In reply to a post by jroadley:

Nothing I used them for 20 months, until I migrated to Plusnet in June.

However in early June they failed smile So people are looking for alternatives just in case.

James - plusnet unlimited fibre - 2 Jun 14 - 470m - Sync 55/9.4 (BT was 51/9.8)
15 years broadband (1999 ntl:cable trial) - Asus RT-AC68U with HG612 - PN BQM - PN speed - old BT speed

BT's DNS servers have been a bad joke for as long as I've had DSL. They fail, die, slowdown and generally break on a regular basis.

The BT YouView Forum has information for various routers. I have a Billion 7800 and followed the instructions and it works great.

I've been having major problems with web pages not loading for several days (on BT Infinity).

Fortunately, I don't use a HomeHub so have been able to change DNS servers and my problems have vanished.

BT's DNS is fast when it answers, but 50% of the time it doesn't answer.

I thought mine had been sluggish for a few days.

I'm in Somerset, fibre, HH3.
