    I'm in the midwest of the USA, and my pings to the adguard DNS servers are 150-200ms.

    I love the idea and love it in testing, but those pings prohibit use. Are there any servers closer to the midwest where pings will be better?

    @Itguy we've launched the new servers about a week ago. Could you please run the tracert command and send us the results?

    @Itguy yeah, you've been routed to the Moscow server... Would you mind telling who's your ISP?

    Any resolution to this? I'd really love to get back to Adguard DNS.

    @Itguy sadly, it doesn't seem that we can do much. The problem is on the side of your ISP, as it chooses to connect to the Moscow server instead of any of the US servers.

    @Itguy in fact, you can try to run the tracert command for specific servers:

    tracert us1.sv.dns.adguard.com
    tracert us2.sv.dns.adguard.com
    tracert us1.nj.dns.adguard.com
    tracert us2.nj.dns.adguard.com

    This may help us understand why you are getting routed to the Moscow server instead.

    What about using direct IP addresses of more local DNS servers? Is that available?

    @Itguy no good news. You can't put in the direct address of a particular server (rather, you can, but you won't be able to connect to anything).
