And I agree with both of you.
Currently in a holiday rental with 12Mb broadband, I VPN into my home to use the pi-hole filtered connection to speed things up. Makes a huge difference despite the VPN overhead.

Quote:
I'm using a DNS blocker of my own design and I currently have approximately 11.5 million domains in the block list.
Where did you find all those domains? My pi-holes have only 800 k.
So old that I did my first coding in octal via switches on a DEC PDP 8
