Does it take long to resolve the address to ip or is the page loading slow?
Maybe you can try connecting to sites with their ip address



Good idea, but comparing page loading times won't tell you much if the page contains e.g.
<img src="http://example.com/huge.jpg";>
Then DNS still comes into play.

Better I think to compare downloading one large compressed
binary with an application that doesn't do caching:

curl -O http://130.239.18.142/pub/gimp/gimp/v2.2/gimp-2.2.3.tar.bz2


That server is slow, can only get 48kB/s

Downloading from the Mozilla site, I can get 150-250kB/s.

There is no problem with my bandwidth, so all roads point to DNS resolution slowness.
