    I set it up both inside of Windows and on my Fritz!Box 7490(router/modem/all in one) settings page:)

    I did a full DNS server search using the Gibson DNS Benchmark and don't see this DNS server anywhere in the top 50 fastest DNS server list. Is this due to my UK location?

    Depending on where you are in the world, if speed is important, you can look for a server here.
    But what Cloudflare's "selling" point is: PRIVACY

    Another thing that is in cloudflare's favor is it delivers so much of the internet these days, this page is 40% being delivered from cloudflare and every query to load it goes through cloudflare before it hits our server, if it can lookup pages it's serving from its own servers faster then there will be an improvement in speed for a lot of the internet.

    If anyone is having problems after setting it up, you might want to read the comments section in Discus at the bottom of the original blog post.
    Maybe someone posted something and the mod there already answered.

    You need to add them manually. 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1

    That's the answer! Those DNS servers are the fastest for my UK TalkTalk connection now I've added them manually to the Gibson DNS Benchmark.

    Does Cloudfare have IPv6 settings?

    For IPv4: Preferred 1.1.1.1, Alternative 1.0.0.1
    For IPv6: Preferred 2606:4700:4700::1111, Alternative 2606:4700:4700::1001
