Amazon thinks it can make part of your internet connection almost five times faster. Ron McElfresh explains how little is accomplished:
Amazon announced a new way to speed up your internet connection. It’s called Cloudflare’s 188.8.131.52 DNS servers. A simple change to your Mac, iPhone, or iPad’s network connection settings will speed up your internet connection.
Oh, really? How much?
Amazon’s Cloudflare and the 184.108.40.206 initiative claims it delivers performance more than four times faster than your local internet service provider– 14.8ms vs 68.23ms. Faster? Yes.
Wow. Sign me up!
Fast enough to notice? No.
Good details on the how to and how little it means for the average Apple customer.
