Reply To: Three 4G better through a VPN

I have been getting that slow to connect thing on Talk Talk but it goes away if I connect through the Avast VPN. Makes me wonder how Avast routes my DNS lookup request packets. Could be that they route all lookup requests to their own DNS server.

If the Talk Talk DNS server was being overloaded then that would explain the speed difference.
