It hunts down the fastest DNS servers available for your computer to use. It runs a fair and thorough benchmark using your web browser history, tcpdump output, or standardized datasets in order to provide an individualized recommendation. It's a Google project.
Download the tool HERE (version 1.3.1 is current)
Best extract the file to your desktop first, no install required, and run the program. Let it do its thing, took about 3mins on my system, after which you will get a report similar to the following:
According to my report, it recommends the above DNS servers, which I then enter into my Router and save the configuration.
TAKE A NOTE OF YOUR ORIGINAL DNS SERVERS BEFOREHAND INCASE YOU WISH TO CHANGE THEM BACK!!

Give it a try and see what you think - nothing to lose
