Just read that Google has a new DNS service to avoid a "poisoned" DNS. The Google DNS is 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 and like or hate Google, this seems to be the way to go to stay out of trouble. They apparently monitor this very closely. Privacy concerns are always an issue with Google but I found it fairly fast.

I don't think google can possible provide faster DNS response then the ISP...
Also there was an article benchmarking just that.

Google is faster than my ISP and OpenDNS is faster than Google. Steve's Domain Name Speed Benchmark just confirmed what I already knew. I've never been a fan of benchmarks either. They don't always translate into real world performance.

I've been enjoying OpenDNS features for a while and I can notice a difference when I connect to sites. There's no delay with OpenDNS.

Don't forget to use the DNS Nameserver Spoofability Test.
