    Default The Global Internet Speedup

    The Global Internet Speedup

    Starting today(30 aug) several big name DNS providers have launched a new way of providing their DNS service, which will allow content to be more efficiently served around the world which should result in an internet speedup for a lot of people.

    The major change comes from the DNS providers starting to pass generic location data about your connection (in simplified terms, the country you are located in) which will allow content providers to make sure you are being served from their closest server or CDN cache servers, meaning you will get the fastest speeds available.
    If you're running on a participating DNS provider, have you noticed a difference in your web browsing speeds?

    "As of today Google, Bitgravity, CDNetworks, DNS.com and Edgecast have deployed this DNS improvement onto their servers around the world. A number of other leading Internet companies will be implementing this in the coming year. This represents a tremendous step forward in improving the Internet experience for millions of consumers and businesses and we look forward to continued cooperation and innovation."

    For more info & explanation

    Update: Google and other Internet companies announcedGlobal Internet Speedup initiative, which is based on adding a shortened version of a user's IP address into a request for a Web page. With that extra information, Ulevitch says, better choices can be made about which servers to use to serve up content based on a user's actual location, speeding up the process. Google and Neustar/UltraDNS discussed the underlying technology in January 2010.

    Initial backers of the speedup initiative :OpenDNS, Google’s Public DNS service, CDNs–BitGravity, CDNetworks, Cloudflare, Comodo and EdgeCast.

    Still, some prominent players are not in the early list of supporters. One is Akamai Technologies, the best-known CDN.As
    the proposed technology, which initially benefits traffic funneled through OpenDNS or Google, only would bring a benefit for about 1% of Akamai’s total users.

    Your average dns lookup takes whatever the round trip time between you and the dns server is. By putting it somewhere close to you (Which would be Singapore city, for us folks), they're at best shaving off 100 ms from your browsing time. That is, sooooo much faster, right?

    What they've reported is absolutely nothing new, and any ISP with a global backbone has been doing it since the day they started operations.
    Why do you think 8.8.8.8 redirects you to Singapore? Or resolver1.odns.com does the same? They're both using anycast routing, whihch effectively lets one IP to be bound to many interfaces and routed to the nearest possible place.
