I would never suggest arbitrarily changing your DNS Server to any old DNS. Instead use a tool that can actually tell you the best DNS in your area to use.

Steve Gibson (A GENIUS) over at Gibson Research Corporation has created just such a tool: GRC's*|*DNS Nameserver Performance Benchmark**

This will benchmark and tell you which DNS servers are fastest in your area... Good Stuff here!
