Will have to try the DNS test again (with custom), but on the first try, having given it the VM DNS numbers, the Superhub 2 (in router mode) provided local cached DNS, blitzing the cached score compared to anything else

IIRC we had to host the content on our own servers, but once the number of downloads per day went above a certain level (around 250 IIRC), Apple's CDN took over the hosting.

AFAIK, Microsoft does as well. Not sure about Corel.

Re: Best DNS For Virgin Internet

In this day and age, it's more common for people to use a CDN than not, especially anything that gets any amount of traffic.
