NextDNS fixed my connection issue, caused by the worldwide outage.

Since the forums is mostly used for problems and ideas for the most part, I just wanted to be like dang this is cool. So I live in Turkey and my ISP is having a major outage after the whole world wide outage that impacted things like Facebook and such. It's been going on for a few hours. The weird but funny thing is, it seems that their DNS server is not resolving anything for the most part. I didn't bother setting NextDNS on the router since I use DoT on my phone. I was like why not try changing the DNS to NextDNS on my router and see if that works. Now I have internet access, so I just wanted to thank the NextDNS team, they are using some solid infrastructure, when Facebook and my ISP is down but NextDNS is just fine lol.


Also, the issue is a worldwide problem where Routers said "Facebook was inaccessible because users were not being directed to the correct place by the Domain Name System" source (https://www.reuters.com/technology/facebook-instagram-down-thousands-users-downdetectorcom-2021-10-04/) it's just amazing in my opinion how NextDNS simply isn't impacted by any of this and got me back online.

  • As additional information here is the Uptime from PerfOps same service that provides DNS Perf in the last 48 Hours / When the whole Facebook DNS issue happened.

    What happened:

    (https://blog.cloudflare.com/october-2021-facebook-outage/) - 99.96 %

    NextDNS - 99.95 %

    Google - 99.93 %

    DNSFilter - 99.82 %

    Cisco Umbrella - 99.71 %

    Quad9 - 99.47 %

    It isn't a huge downtime in any of the services but the fact that Cloudflare basically the company that holds most of the internet together and NextDNS being 00.01% apart in terms of Uptime while the Outage happened seems nice to me.
