It is true that Google DNS and Open DNS can be faster than some existing solutions or settings, like AT&T, but I would not blinded change the DNS settings without validating 1st.

How fast a DNS will resolve depends of several factors, your location is one of those. So what's fast for you, maybe is not so fast for me.

Instead, I would check available DNS servers. This link is nice:

http://code.google.com/p/namebench/

It checks your existing DNS server settings against other local DNS servers, compare, and give you a report of which one is faster and for how much (latency in ms).
