I don’t think it will make any changes to the internet speed. Atleast, I haven’t experienced any change. The speeds are controlled by ISP’s. I wonder if we can make any changes to it. But, Google’s DNS may help in loading the site faster by fetching it earlier.
I only use it when some website doesn’t loads for me due to DNS issues. I don’t use it for my regular connection.
Ya but your current dns server may take a longer time to respond which may slow your connection..By using Google DNS you can get the latest dns Information while changing or setting up a domain name to your site..
In my country I was unable to open blogspot site for DNS problem of the internet provider and I changed the DNS as you shown and it was fixed, thanks nice post, keep rolling
