    Thanks for this. It makes quite a bit of difference on my 4G mobile broadband. In case if someone is wondering how to change the DNS on Android without root, there's an app called DNS66, which really works.

    I'm using cFosSpeed, the Data Saver and the WebBoost Chrome addons and of course blocking ads with uBlock Origin. And now this DNS (i was using Google's until now)...pages load before i hit enter/F5. lol

    You can do it from the terminal:

    Code:
    networksetup -setdnsservers Wi-Fi 1.1.1.1 1.0.0.1

    It seems like Cloudfare is having massive issues across the world with their DNS. All servers (v4 and v6) are down for me in the UK, Central Europe and US.
