Google public DNS vs Open DNS

Few days ago, Google released his Public DNS.
Until now, the most famous public DNS was Open DNS, a service founded in 2005.

from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenDNS
“OpenDNS provides the following recursive nameserver addresses[11] for public use, mapped to the nearest operational server location by anycast routing:

  • 208.67.222.222 (resolver1.opendns.com)
  • 208.67.220.220 (resolver2.opendns.com)
  • 208.67.222.220 [11]
  • 208.67.220.222 [11]

Now google is in the game too, and looks like GpDNS, is very fast at least in US.

But what about where YOU live?
Which one is the best DNS for you?

well, have a look at this, and find out what is best for you
