Cloudflare Warp is a full VPN service, all your traffic is tunnelled through Cloudflare

Three’s problem isn’t DNS, I always use my own DNS, not the ISP’s.

Cloudflare carry 5-10% of web traffic. Akamai are the largest CDN with ~30%

Don't cloudflare do a lot more than Akamai though in terms of protection (e.g. DDos) which the other CDNs don't offer (yet?). I thought they were bigger than that!

I think the volume of traffic on Akamai may be down to Microsoft and Apple using them. Plus Sophos. Though apparently they have over 1.4m customers according to Wikipedia.

Cloudfare apparently claims to support over 12m domains/websites.

It looks to come down to whether we compare throughput or sites.

Great news; thanks for the confirmation.

I must say, when certain websites stutter, I do wonder if the problem has come back, but that behaviour is notably different (Chrome doesn't auto-reload the site via a timeout page).

Agreed: The timeout issue was not a DNS problem. Hostnames were resolving fine, but the random failures manifested as timeouts—either when making TCP connections or negotiating TLS.

You can get around the page hanging issue by using cloudflare warp beta on your pc.
That's nice, but no use on my Chromebook, Amazon Fire, Harmony Hub, YouView DVR, etc. And I'm not putting on any of our phones, given the reports of overheating and sucking batteries dry.

Anyway, it looks like the problem's fixed, so no need to cover it up any longer.
