Observer the time difference between the two. Does it indicate that Google DNS is faster?

By the way, I'm currently using OpenDNS on a Windows 7 PC with 3GB of RAM and a 3.99 GHz processor.

Thanks in advance.

Based on your results, Google DNS is faster than Open DNS. But the results may be different in other countries.

Not really. Tracert shows the hop count from your network to the destination network. Just because the hop count is more/less or the MS response times are more/less may not make a difference.

What do you get when querying the servers themselves? What is the query time?
