The speed of your internet connection depends on many factors which are – Modem/Router, response from DNS Server, WiFi Coverage, WiFi Interference, WiFi Router, Network adapters, Modem settings, computer settings etc.
One of the major factor which affect the browsing experience is the response time from DNS Server. DNS (Domain Name System) Server will translates the domain name to the corresponding IP address so that browsers can load whatever website you want to access. This is done because we use website names like Google.com, but the browser requires an IP address for this name, so, DNS is responsible for translating this name into an IP address. BSNL has Cache DNS Servers at 9 locations and Authoritative DNS Servers at Bangalore & Pune.

Why BSNL Anycast DNS 184.108.40.206 is faster than regular DNS?
Anycast, also known as IP anycast, is a networking technique that allows for multiple machines to share the same IP address. Based on the location of the user request, the routers send it to the machine in the network that is closest. This is beneficial since, among other things, it reduces latency and increases redundancy. Anycast network addressing and routing method enables DNS routing requests to be answered by the closest available instance of the IP address queried. It allows Internet requests to be answered faster, connecting users to their end destination faster. in this case, this DNS is BSNL’s new Anycast DNS IP Address 220.127.116.11
