Slow Internet while on NextDNS

Hi all, new user here experiencing slow internet, especially to sites like imgur.com, when using nextdns servers. If i switch over to google DNS, everything is super fast again.


I'm in Miami on AT&T gig fiber

Ping times have some serious latency: - avg 25ms - avg 13ms - 7ms - 7ms

Not sure what else I can do to troubleshoot.   

thanks in advance

  • Please show the ping output of imgur.com with and without nextdns configured.

  • Here you go, looks the same- https://imgur.com/a/At0KbhQ

    To give a little more context to how i'm testing (if it helps)-

    ill browse reddit r/pics and just scroll down

    on google dns, the pictures load instantaneously
    on NDNS servers, it loads slowly like an old modem

  • Also, in the traceroute in the diag link, there's a couple replies from telia.net which appears to be in Europe. That doesn't seem right?

    • Dan what makes you think this is in Europe? Those two are in Miami.

      Olivier Poitrey  random google IP location lookup site.   Should have known better.

    There is something going on with MIA. Been seeing this for the past few days where the primary will be in the hundreds of ms and the secondary will be in the single digits. It'll briefly go back down but then spike back up into the hundreds.
