NextDNS really slow today

I noticed pages were super slow to load. I pinged my nextdns address and the average response time is 400ms, normally its 10-12ms.

A leak test shows I'm connected to "United Arab Emirates - Dubai" rather than my normal one in "Ontario Canada" or Quebec Canada.

Is there anything on my end I can do to fix this?

https://ping.nextdns.io/ shows:

  • Just tried the ping again and this new result:


     vultr-yto        13 ms

      zepto-ymq        19 ms  (ultralow2)

      axcelx-bos       19 ms

      smarthost-bos    25 ms

      anexia-yto       30 ms

      vultr-ewr        30 ms

      router-pit       30 ms

      teraswitch-pit   40 ms

      ovh-ymq          70 ms  (ultralow1)

    ■ anexia-dxb      314 ms  (anycast1, anycast2)

  • My anycast2 is also going to DXB today. My anycast1 is usually zepto-xrs. Anycast2 has never been right but it's usually Frankfurt, which is tolerable. DXB is very slow from the eastern US.

  • Can you please provide a traceroute to or a https://nextdns.io/diag?

  • Should be fixed. Please try again and confirm.
