Great idea for service, but it has to be lightning fast to be in the middle of thousands of requests a minute as someone is surfing the web without making the web feel sluggish.

In NYC on the largest metro ISP. Earlier in the day, was getting 25-43 msec to the typical major DNS providers (1.1.1.1, 4.4.4.4, 8.8.8.8, 9.9.9.9, as well as AdGuard), and usually 71 - 73 msec to you.

After a while, started getting as slow as 280 msec to you.

Last hour or so, mostly just getting timeouts to you, making the web, as well as apps, unusable.

Had to revert.
