Re: Why use a third party DNS?

Several reasons, which can probably be summed up by 'censorship' and 'monetisation' and 'privacy'.

One specific example is that TalkTalk block remote control software such as TeamViewer and Splashtop (which I use to give remote support to my clients) so if a client is on TT I have to change the DNS in their router to bypass this stupid block.
