Routing to Dubai instead of Delhi - NextDNS - ⚠️ Wrong Anycast location Issue - Please help :(

Hey @nextdns Team, I live in India and the closest server to me is DELHI (anexia-del) and not Dubai (anexia-dxb).

My issue is that when I connect NextDNS on my PC and ping "https://ping.nextdns.io", the results are not pretty good:

  anexia-del      13 ms  (ultralow2)

  vultr-del       21 ms  (anycast1, ultralow1)

  ls-bom          38 ms

  anexia-maa      47 ms

  do-blr          53 ms

  vultr-blr       57 ms

  vultr-bom       63 ms

■ anexia-dxb      74 ms  (anycast2)

  melbicom-dxb   109 ms

  lightnode-ruh  240 ms

 

NOTE: When I use Android and iPhone's Private DNS, it shows the correct route with the lowest ping, when I ping the "ping.nextdns.io".

⚠️ Maybe something is fishy with the anycast servers? I guess they're not connecting me to the nearest location (anexia-del) :( Can you please check this once? Thanks a lot.

    del is a ultralow only location. You can switch to our app or YogaDNS to get ultralow on Windows

       Just a last question :)

      What do you recommend using: the app OR YogaDNS?

       different providers, we always have two different providers/network per location. In del, only one of them supports anycast, meaning the secondary anycast IP won't be in del.
